Interview with director Marc Barceló
Director Marc Barceló
Describe your film MATER SALVATORIS in one sentence.
A grey child lost in a stagnant grieved and guilty wind.
If your film was an animal, what animal would it be?
A baby rabbit. It actually appears physically in the film.
Which filmmaker would you like to have a beer with?
David Lynch. Maybe he'd rather have a coffee.
What was the first film you remember seeing at a movie theater?
James Cameron's "Titanic". I totally fell in love with everything about the film. I was incredibly awed.
Scene from MATER SALVATORIS
Which film deserved an Oscar but didn’t get one?
Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara for last year's "Carol".
What would you be if you weren’t a filmmaker?
Writer, painter, photographer, actor... which are completely combinable.
What do your grandparents think you do as a job?
They think it is a beautiful thing but they're also concerned about how difficult it is.
Is this your first visit to Munich? What do you expect from the festival?
It's going to be my first visit to Munich, so I'm very excited to get to know the city and its people. I'm sure the festival will be a great gate into many cultures, languages and points of view about the cinema itself. I'm looking forward to it.
