Meet the Filmmakers: SAFE SPACE

Interview with director Zora Rux

Meet the Filmmakers: SAFE SPACE

Director Zora Rux


What was your highlight during the process of filming SAFE SPACE?

We have a 8 minutes one shot in the film, a plenary scene with about 30 people, most of them non-actors, real refugees and activists. In the scene they are talking about how to handle the situation. After days of rehearsing and shooting the one shot, we opened the discussion to everyone and talked about the subject as if we were in a real plenary scene. It was amazing to see the people suddenly argue and almost fight about the subject of our film without me directing it. It was as if the film suddenly started to be alive. We recorded that and used part of it in the film and the credits.

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

Very sad.
