published on July 3, 2020

hey all people welcome again to the repair

as we speak we acquired an opportunity to speak to

Baltazar corum aqua who he’s the

director of a drift which is popping out

this Friday June 1st he additionally did Everest

and the deep is absolutely fascinating

filmmaker and he got here by to speak about

one of many movies that has impressed

actually his whole profession it's a movie

known as come and see and it's a Russian

World Struggle two movie that was made again in

the 80s it's an extremely highly effective movie

and Baltazar had some actually fascinating

issues to say about it

thanks very a lot for being right here nicely

to start with congratulations on a drift

it's it's a very cool movie I acquired to

see if the opposite night time yeah however inform us

just a bit bit in regards to the the film

simply usually our drift is a couple of

girl let's discover ourselves surrounded in

the center of the ocean and we don't

know what how she acquired there and we don't

understand how she's gonna get out of there

it's very a lot informed from the angle

of this younger girl and it's a real

story you realize after I began digging

round I came upon mainly that there

are nearly non survival tales of girls

in opposition to nature all of us have it man as you

know cell exists its wolves and beards

and you realize man growling and and however

however in actuality you realize girls who spend

as a lot time in nature as man you realize

if not we wouldn't have mamas positive you

know and and and due to this fact it simply

me on couple of those ranges

you realize simply from the look of the movie

the the thought of being stranded in open

water like that’s personally terrifying

yeah there's one thing so primal about

simply being stranded and actually the

center of this flat ocean an infinite

and the primary shot is sort of what what

what I'm attempting to set the tone is like

you go from claustrophobia caught inside

of a ship that you just don't know if it's

gonna go down when you're caught in

there and I sit opens up as he will get on

the highest of the boat you go into

aquaphobia you realize that is mainly

probably the most scary factor in regards to the ocean is

that the waist nurse the endlessness

there's nothing on the horizon you realize

I mentioned extra see ya and it's it's a movie

it's filled with moments like that the place

you're simply I feel it's most likely the

place on earth you may get furthest away

from land in any path in actuality

have been this lady this girl was surrounded

1500 miles away for me to place it in

perspective it's such as you're caught

someplace in New York they usually're at all times

you need to both go to Iceland or to

LA and it's all sea however you probably did shoot

most of it in like really on the market in

the Pacific yeah yeah I wished to name

her proper within the ocean so in speaking

about these these form of survival

tales one of many ways in which you need to

speak about is come and see which is a

movie from 1985 it's Russian movie what

what’s your expertise along with his movie I

imply I imply my contact with cinema was in

the start simply Chitty Chitty Bang

Bang you realize like

that's how I began you realize I didn't

however then you realize I I simply acquired extra

fascinated by seeing totally different cinema we

had a movie competition in Iceland however I noticed

Kurosawa you realize I used to be fascinating

visually gorgeous however then I went to

this little Russian movie you realize come

and see and I hadn't heard something

about it and I keep in mind I used to be simply when

I used to be watching it I had no concept cinema

may have an effect on me in that method nearly on an

existential istic degree which signifies that

I felt I used to be within the perspective of this

younger man the sound modified he misplaced a

lot due to a bombing he misplaced his

listening to this simply gave me a brand new new

perspective of cinema and made me

actually far more fascinated by it you

know partly it was the rationale why I

began making movies and secondly I

suppose it has affected on a deep

unconscious degree all the things I do and

particularly adrift and Everest

and the deep you realize is it yeah yeah

and that's it's an extremely highly effective

movie it simply narrative Lee it's about

this this child simply attempting to outlive

throughout World Struggle two so yeah there may be

that component and such as you mentioned with the

deep and Everest and adrift that component

of surviving simply out in these

extremely hostile circumstances being this

sort of weak as a result of it's not it's

seeing the warfare from inside not from the

exterior it's experiencing how it’s to

be in a you realize misplaced Russia and kittens

this superb face like that man has as

nicely it's it I imply how outdated his face

will get proper in comparison with how younger you

look see even developed like wrinkles

yeah yeah you realize it's unbelievable and

I'm positive they went by way of hell to shoot

this yeah and this this scene takes

place we're about 30 or 40 minutes into

the movie at this level and and as you

talked about earlier the there's a bomb

that exploded close to by him earlier so

he's simply misplaced his listening to so he's not

fairly again but and right here he’s returning

to his village for the primary time since

leaving to go combat with the resistance

and there's simply no person right here yeah and

there's a horrifying scene and simply how

they slowly notice you realize what what

sort of hell has gone on there may be that I

don't present it like throw it in your face

you sort of uncover it with them and

by way of them you realize there's one thing

to about how quietly they arrive in yeah

to see all of this and and there's

you mentioned they don't throw it in your

face it's not like there's our bodies strewn

it's the whores nicely you could be peace

in Sona now yeah I imply it's both that

mama underneath the desk as an alternative of a you

know on the desk however however but it surely's simply

the way in which it's in your your sort of deeply

and also you're additionally in his perspective

as a result of you’ll be able to't actually hear there's

nothing that that that you just see loads in

your work to is is how lengthy most of

these takes are yeah like there's not a

lot of there's not very many cuts in

this sequence is that they're not going out

of their option to make it one take no I

like I like that III there’s a stability

of that once you begin forcing the the

the scene is to suit the digicam and the

hearth digicam turns into extra necessary than

the story but it surely must be natural in

like that is very good he brings the

soup there the digicam stays behind he

goes so that you're not and what what’s

someplace you get extra you're extra in

the angle you extra on this area

you realize as a result of chopping can really

you’ll be able to lose a way of area and sense

of you realize that there the time and I

know that and I I like that when like

like within the first shot I do in are

terrific

it's simply to provide you that you’re there

along with her you realize you're caught there

along with her you realize I feel typically when

individuals who put perspective and be

nervous however prefer it's a standpoint

like the way you see it the trail doesn't

that doesn't give it to me you realize

there's extra be sustained with the

particular person and and it’s it’s simply

one thing additionally which is to belief your

actors to carry the body you realize and in

this case what rift you realize that's what

Shailene I feel she's able to and

that's fantastically and are permitting

viewers additionally to see that you just belief her

to try this

you realize prefer it's it's a mutual factor

you realize you sort of you say inform the

different eye I feel she's adequate to

maintain the body lengthy sufficient you realize see

I don't have to chop round her and take

the bit older I can really a breast

and a belief the performers and that's I

imply it's exhausting within the sort of the trendy

cinema as a result of individuals individuals need to

let's get to it however if you happen to give time to

sure issues they are going to have an effect on you on a

deeper degree and I'm attempting to try this

it not drift as a lot as I can to permit

individuals to remain in

perspective and construct it up slowly and

not cease with the storm you realize like

positive give me give it time so when and

when it hits you it hits you hotter

clearly the textual content of this this film

has little or no to do with you realize a

movie like a drift yeah however these motion pictures

that simply stick to you and also you don't

know why and then you definitely notice later like

oh there's loads of that film in a

drift yeah it simply it simply sort of boils

inside you and brings one thing out

that I didn't know that I had this type

of meat for man in opposition to nature girl

in opposition to nature this sort of you realize

drive of nature and and the way you ways you

sort of yeah survive the the you realize

coming from Iceland it's really form

of apparent but it surely wasn't to me after I

was you realize being introduced up that's

nice it's actually fascinating I actually

admire you coming and speaking about

the movie and adrift is out June 1st yeah
