WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A FILMMAKER TODAY?

One filmmaker answers this question before each feature.

Strange paradox at a time when cinema attendance rate is excellent.
Screens of all kinds, globally, invade our daily lives and trivialize images as never before.
Today, everyone makes images. But making images does not mean making a movie. . .
