Aristofanis Soulikias and Nadine Gomez have different ways of making films. Their precious contributions to this research project offer unique views on what it means to make films today. Between shooting and handmade film animation, these two interviews show different sensitivities towards our ways to live cities and connect with our lived experiences, and they both tell of a strong vital force that digs into humanity and into the collective dimension of the spaces we share.
The interviews with Aristofanis Soulikias and Nadine Gomez were published on Rondò Pilot, issue no. 2.0/2021, available here.
