Following the very engaging panel discussion “Women in film” at the Sydney Film Festival Hub, FRED interviewed the three panellists, Eva Vitija, Alina Grigore and Tea Lindeburg, directors and screenwriters of, respectively, Loving Highsmith, Blue Moon and As in heaven. The three filmmakers explore and discuss themes emerging in their works, including gender equity in filmmaking, the role of education in making women pursue their dreams, portraying male characters from a female perspective, and much more.
Eva, Alina and Tea talk about their films presented at the festival and the strong female characters they have depicted: Texan novelist Patricia Highsmith in Loving Highsmith, 22-year-old Irina trapped in her countryside Romanian life in Blue Moon, and teenager Lise in 19th century countryside Denmark who aspires to go to boarding school in As in heaven.
