Meet the Filmmakers: OPERA GLASSES

Director Mila Zhluktenko


What is your favorite movie quote?

"How long have we been on this rock? Five weeks? Two days? Where are we? Help me to recollect." – THE LIGHTHOUSE (2019)


What film would you most like to make a sequel of?

IDA (2013).


What has been the strangest thing you’ve experienced at a film festival so far?

As this year was a special festival year, I would say the strangest thing was sitting in my living room, drinking a beer, and giving an online Q&A. What might be even weirder is to sit alone at home and to film yourself giving an online introduction to your own film. It’s like talking to yourself in public.


A new TV series about studying film needs a title. What title would you choose?

"A Dollar Is What I Need".


What would you be if you weren’t a filmmaker?

A film enthusiast.


Which person from the film industry would you most like to have a beer with?

Mati Diop.


What was the first film you saw in a movie theater?

MULAN (1998).
