“Ar fi foarte ușor să privești filmul prin ochii unei disfuncții relaționale la nivel de societate. Însă puterea filmului e de a pune cap la cap prin mijloacele cele mai modeste o poezie urbană, strict bucureșteană, a omului aliniat cinci zile pe săptămână, și restul de două alienat de propriile Read more
a beautiful interview with our producer Anda, about the film and our future projects
An Interview with a Romanian Independent Movie Producer ”Sleep Awake” has hunted the virtual space since its completion, in 2012. Sensorial, visceral disturbing as ghosts usually are. They said it was a movie about the living silence around us. About the fight between our fears and desires. Some attended the screenings in a few artsy bars/clubs in Bucharest. Some loved it. Some hated it. Nobody left without a reaction. Anda, 24, the film’s producer, says that there is no other hard essence of the film than the disclosure of the most intimate feelings of each observer. Excitement, disorder, trouble, confusion, unrest. Maybe more. Anda and Andrei, producer and director, completed Sleep Awake, a Romanian independent movie and they already have plans for new films: “Linear A”, telling the story of an unusual couple, dealing with poverty and trying to make noise music as a band and “Thraum”, a more complex project, needing a budget, the story of a child that metamorphoses, as he got growing a pair of spectacular butterfly wings. Sleep Awake is available for watching online or download here or you can order a hard copy here. We met Anda on a cold Sunday morning in the middle of the deserted battlefield of the Old Centre and soon shared common feelings about Bucharest, its people and places, which made everything much easier. Short-haired, vivid eyes, straightforward and natural, Anda is somehow representative (she might not agree:) for the new generation of people doing things out of passion and conviction, having something to say to the world without being driven by the financial rewards (which are good, when not a purpose.) She thinks independent, acts independent and has a weakness for independent films. What Qualia Films means? Qualia Films is a concept/film production house, without a legal statute, dealing with films about marginal groups with the intention of exploring things that are out of reach or that we are usually scared of. It started with the core team Andrei, me, Sorin Nainer and the assistant director, Sabina. My first project with Andrei (a test drive also, that’s how we’ve met) was a noise-dance videoperformance in the “jungle” at Moara lui Assan, called MENO. (more…)
Simion spune despre film: “O serie de replici taioase vorbite in mod mizer ce scot la suprafata o lume a intimitatii umane bolnave din zilele noastre. De aceea nu-mi place aceasta abordare ce iti inspira sentimente deloc placute dintr-o lume pierduta moral… ” more Iar pe Mareleecran, Lucian spune: “Dacă Read more
Mariei Drinceanu i-am trimis filmul pentru a-l vedea, in calitatea ei de cinefil si critic de film, sa imi spuna cam ce parere are despre el, sa inteleg mai bine zona si genul lui. Dupa ce a vazut filmul Maria mi-a facut o mare surpriza spunindu-mi ca va scrie un Read more
