A conversation with Hadas ben Aroya, director of All Eyes Off Me, presented in the Encounters section of the 2021 Berlinale International Film Festival. The film is an exploration of sexual fantasies, intimacy and love in the modern world. In this interview, the director talks with us about her interest in the topic and how she likes to integrate the things she loves in her works. We also talk about some of the defining traits of the style of All Eyes Off Me, including the structure that is split into three parts, as well as the intimacy of the extended sex scenes and more.
All Eyes Off Me: Danny is pregnant by Max but she doesn’t get around to telling him at a party. Meanwhile, Max is busy trying out his girlfriend Avishag’s sexual fantasies with her. She wants him to hit her when they have sex. Avishag takes her bruises over to Dror, whose dog she sits. A familiarity develops between the older man and the young woman that neither of them expected.
