THE (SUPER COOL)

DIRECTORZ

"I wanted to create a character that lives in a body that doesn't belong to her, and because of this what happens to her body doesn't affect her or even involve her. I wanted to take this to a limit normally not crossed."   more 
"I was putting in the topics of who I was and what my community was at that time, a conversation about racial politics within the queer community etc. I was making an attempt at opening up a conversation. I am an activist. I'm an art activist."  more 

CHERYL DUNYE

"Born In Flames came out of that New York  new wave scene. Who knew things could be worse for women now than back then in terms of policies? I was so angry when I made it - now I think women are angry all over again and reclaiming that in a new way."  more 

LIZZIE BORDEN

"I make films as a way to tell stories that are part of contemporary life, that portray different people. The choice of actors, their facial expressions, the captured or suggested relationships may have as much impact as the script in shaping audience feeling."  more 

CAROLINA JABOR

"My imagination took off with these isolated characters who had nothing to do but wait for cars to crash into their house. This arena - this place in the middle of nowhere where nothing happens."  more 

TAMAR VAN DEN DOP

"I admired the grandiosity of this post-communist yet mythological transit town..The material soon took a life of it's own and became an Eastern European superhero film, although the supernatural power is treated with a lot of skepticism."   more 

PETRA SZÖCS

"I wish to keep working with my DP Rimyvydas Leipus until retirement do us part. We mainly try to create our own world, inspired by daily life, memories, impressions and dreams."   more 

EVA NEYMANN

" I wanted to tell this personal war experience from a female perspective, which I find very important. I was 13 or 14 when the war started. I am now 40 and am only now telling this story after more than 20 years."  more
