Tide Lines and The Desert Fish. Our interview series of the Victoria Film Festival continues for our brand spanking new, CinemaSpiel. Unfortunately Kyle Wells couldn’t join us but Jason Whyte and myself kept the machine moving with some pretty amazing guests. First, we spoke to producer Arwen Hunter and director Andrew Naysmith about their documentary Tide Lines, on OceanGybe and fighting plastic pollution. FYI – this film was a huge filmfest hit. We got into film making, sifting through 300+ hours of footage and how plastics are impacting our lives and what we can do about it. There was even a special contribution of questions, courtesy of Carol-Lynn Michaels, a very vocal (and local) advocate against plastic pollution.

Second up was a fun chat with director Mohammad Ghorbankarimi and art director/costume designer Nassim Azadi about their new film, The Desert Fish. If you haven’t seen the film, just check out the trailer below and you’ll be intrigued. We tackled how being a cinematographer can help as a director, what it’s like making a movie when you’re a couple, and how this movie set in Iran is viewed differently, from different cultures.
