Elias Demetriou: I had no ambition to leave my country, but in the end it left me”

These are not Elias Demetriou’s words. They were said by one of the female characters in the film Fish N’Chips, with which the director participates in the International Competiion of the SIFF. But they are essential for the understanding of the entire film. The subject is very suitable for a comedy, but Demetriou chooses a completely different approach, creting a serious film, which in today’s multicultural situation in Europe poses a very important question: Who we are – t...

Juan Torres: “I am someone that can`t stop moving.”

If I ask your friends to describe you, what would they say? They would say that I am someone that can`t stop moving. Combined with my cinema profession in Madrid I play also on a latin music band in Paris. The result: last week in Guadalajara, now in Sofia (laughing), and next week going to Paris for a concert there. So my friends also usually say that they can never see me. What qualities do you feel a successful artist should have? I think, and I hope there is not a...
