The screening of French film Lights Out
followed by the Q&A attracted great attention yesterday evening. As an answer to the questions, Fabrice Gobert
director told us that the movie is based on his own personal experience: the characters, the story and other details all lead back to an incident that happened in high school when one of his classmates was murdered.
What he tried to convey was how the students’ imagination is influenced by Simon’s disappearance and how it results in a combination of different film genres, each character representing a different one. He also explained how they reshot and slightly changed each scene when used more than once. Further on, we learned that Gobert finds role games kind of comic but loves Tarantino. The film is screened once more on April 15th, Friday at 20:30 in Örökmozgó.
The Tuesday screening of Wonder Boy
was attended by the producer, Teresa Sabatine
. The beautiful young lady came to Hungary on a visit to her brother living here and is very happy to link this family programme to the promotion of the film. She revealed that as a producer she practically participated in almost all stages of the filmmaking process from the scenario to the shooting, editing and even promoting. She talked about the great transformation that the main actress, Caleb Steinmeyer had to go through to change her silhouette by a lot of training, so that 99% of the action scenes could be shot without a stunt. It also turned out that screenwriter-director Michael Morrissey
is a huge comics fan, which may explain the comics style of the movie. Teresa, despite her young age has been working in the film industry for 4 years now and has a new project with Michael Morrissey, another exciting psycho-thriller. We are looking forward to it.
