French producer Estelle Robin-Yu talks well and long in an interview brought and made by EDN (European Documentary Network). She talks about her background, about why and how she has been involved in international co-productions, and about the new construction around her company Les Films du Balibari and Point du Jour.
Read the whole interview, here is a teaser where Robin-Yu talks about the new film of Wiktoria Szymanska ”The Man Who made Angels Fly”, that tells about puppet master Michael Meschke:
The reaction of audiences is quite amazing, as they recognise the extremely singular filmmaking of Wiktoria. They really feel they are privileged to have been given access to the world of the master, which is a disappearing one. Some people cry, most of them are deeply touched by the beauty of the film and the emotions it triggered in them. We still need to find ways to promote the film to a larger audience, through cinema screens, but also art galleries, museums, and other bias, as the audience can be vast for such a universal film, which talks about life and death, love, betrayal, all our deep and strong human emotions.
That is how a producer should talk, right?
