Three Questions for the Director

1. Short Film has a unique way of telling stories and exploring themes. What is it that fascinates you about the short format?

Charlotte Puoyaud: I think the short format is a great way to tell stories keeping only their essence, without frills.

2. The program your film is selected for is called “Die lange Nacht des abwegigen Films”: What connection do you see between your film and that title?

Charlotte Puoyaud: My short film is a long journey from day to night, from humanity to animality, like a crazy sleepless night.

3. What film has inspried you most to make films yourself and what part of it do you see in your own work?

Charlotte Puoyaud: For this film, I was really inspired by John Boorman « Excalibur » as we can see with the outfits and the magical dimension of my work.
