WHITE AS SNOW, an interview with Selim and Nur Gunes

user
One of the most memorable films I have seen this past year was the haunting and lyrical film WHITE AS SNOW (Turkey, 2010) by director Selim Gunes and producer Nur Gunes.

INTERVIEW with director Johannes Stjärne Nilsson, SOUND OF NOISE (2010)   THE SOUND OF NOISE (Sweden, 2010) screened at the 2011 Copenhagen Film Festival. Co-directed by directors Johannes Starne Nilsson and Ola Simonsson, this film is a one of a kind experiment of music on film.
