user
Reading what Brooklyn International Film Festival executive director Marco Ursino has to say about "Stunt," the theme of this year's edition (June 4 to 13, 2010) in Brooklyn, New York, I can't help but wonder if he's been fraternizing with his title sponsor, Bushmills Irish Whiskey: "With Stunt, the festival intends to take a snapshot at some of the hottest issues affecting our times while emphasizing the weight and gravity of being on a critical collision path with histo...

Interview with Jonas Mekas Filmmaker and DotFest Jury member

user
Interview with Jonas Mekas   Why do you make film? Why do you make such films (not that predictable narrative ones)? I do not know why I make films. It's an obsession. I make diaristic films, it's basically a narrative form of cinema, only that people do not know that I am making a different kind of narrative film. They are used to the oldfashioned narrative cinema. But why diaristic? It stands so on the edge of becoming uninteresting and you, more or less, let the viewer into ...

However, when a performance of great depth or realism is given by someone you do not know, my tendency is to pay very close attenti...
