The ice cream of celebration ! Because yes we did finish our meeting with female filmmakers ! 8 in total, and all as different that could be, from different generation and various stories. But all have in common the same passion for storytelling and showed me how diverse, complex and beautiful can be independent cinema in China today. Also, meeting all those different women from around the world who are doing the same work, but are expressing themself in such personal and authentic way is a true and huge inspiration to me. There is so many different way to be and to experience our life on earth for the time we are there. That makes me just want to continue what I do and make more films. .
To meet those chinese film directors, I traveled a huge part of China, from North to South. That was a real journey ! Also, I want to say a special thank you to Annie who helped me meeting the filmmakers in all Beijing area. But also Cathy in Shanghai area, and Huan in the middle. Most of the directors couldn't speak English, so having their support was inestimate ! Thank you to you guys :) .
What's next ? Well : focus to the main story and focus to my main heroine :) More to tell you soon ! .
