Panelists at the press conference on Ana Lily Amirpour’s competition title at the Venice Film Festival Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon today said they have experienced feeling like an outsider, a theme that runs through history.
The film follows a girl with unusual and dangerous powers who escapes from a mental asylum and tries to fend for herself in New Orleans.
The title Mona Lisa, Korean actress Jun Jong-Seo, was not present today, and the dog Benny who was present did not comment on the issue of being an outsider.
But for star Kate Hudson: “Creative people naturally always feel like an outsider if you’ve got it right. People who get weird and creative feel weird and like being on the outside. ”
Venice Review: ‘The Hole’
Craig Robinson remarked, “All my life I’ve felt like an outsider,” from third grade to being with The office in section four, or, ”even further Brooklyn ni-ni. I’m not there all the time, so it’s kind of followed me. ”
For Ed Skrein, “Imposter syndrome is a part of us all. I’ve felt like a weirdo most of my life, but I’m embracing it now and I do not want to apologize for it. ”
Asked about her film’s characters, Amirpour (director of A girl goes home alone at night and the upcoming woman-led restart of Cliffhanger) said, “I want to see the type of weird that I want to see, and the Mona Lisa is my hero -weirdo. One of the wonderful things she gets to do is constantly change shape, reinvent herself. She’s like a beast, then a child, then a girl, then a monster – and it’s freedom, it’s exciting. ”
She added: “I am driven by a deep thirst for personal freedom and to find that it is a constant process of exploring what prevents you from feeling free … I made this film before this world , we all experience together.It’s like a mysterious thing. (Mona Lisa) is locked in and she’s going to break free and I think we all just want the fu * k out of the box. ”
Amirpour called her cast “spirit warriors” who went on a “vision quest”. Hudson said that her character Bonnie, who is a mother and exotic dancer on New Orleans’ Bourbon Street, “is very much a warrior, even though it’s in an unexpected type of shell … There’s a part of my soul that has very Bonnie in itself. ”
Robinson, whose officer Harold is “a serious person who does not stop until his mission is completed,” chimed in that there was “war spirit” on the set, “for sure.”
When asked about her ability to make elegant and precise films, Amirpour summed up: “I know my own creative boner, I need to feel it, and I know when I fail it.”
