Juan Daniel F. Molero – Filmmaker – Videophilia (and Other Viral Syndromes)
FRED’s Matt Micucci talks with Juan Daniel F. Molero about his film “Videophilia (and Other Viral Syndromes)”, which had its world premiere in the Hivos Tiger Awards section of the 44th International Film Festival Rotterdam. He tells us about about the interesting style he employed to construct his narrative and how his other interest and organic approaches shape his work as a filmmaker. He also comments on how he “really wanted to make a commercial film” before allowing himself to indulge in his beloved experimental style and tells us how he was able to finance the film and complete the film.
Plot: Internet cafés and slackers, not-so-innocent schoolgirls and amateur porn using Google Glass, Mayans and the end of the world, acid trips and guinea pigs as extras in an exorcism: things in Lima, the Peruvian capital, where “Videophilia (and Other Viral Syndromes)” is set, are pretty similar to contemporary reality, virtual or otherwise, in the rest of the world.
