Meet the Filmmakers: THE RESORT

Interview mit Regisseur Shadae Lamar Smith

Meet the Filmmakers: THE RESORT

Regisseur Shadae Lamar Smith


What is the original idea of your film THE RESORT – how did it all start?

I have always been interested in the intersections between race, gender, and sexuality. Being of Caribbean descent I wanted to explore those convergences with a caribbean male character but through the eyes of the world around him. It's a view and topic to me that very few storytellers explore with a clinical or critical lens.

What was your highlight during the process of filmmaking?

Mounting a production with a wonderful support team of producers, crew, and actors in another country.

If you weren't a filmmaker, you'd be…?

A historian.

Is it your first time in Munich? What do you expect of the city and the festival?

It is my second time in Munich. I expect dope films, great architecture and good beer!!
