Dr. Steeve Coupeau Interviews Directors of The Northern Cousin Andres Arteaga and Andrea Arazaga at 3rd Ecuadorian Film Festival in New York, 13 June 2017

Where does your artistic influence come from and when did you start this project?

We have been avidly watching documentaries for many years, mainly the Maysles brothers and Eduardo Coutinho. We felt that documentary permits us to part from our own egos and dive into the real possibilities of filmmaking.

How would you describe your personal directing style?

We found that filming a documentary gave us a greater insight into human relations and we are very grateful for that.

What is the main thread of the story depicted in the film?

The main thread of the story tells the life experience of Pedro Erazo, a musician and immigrant in the United States. It's a journey from playing in subway stations and then playing in some of the biggest stages in the world.

Dr. Steeve Coupeau Interviews Chris Kelly, Director of A Cambodian Spring at Brooklyn Film Festival, 6 June 2017

Where does your artistic influence come from and when did you start this project?

I have been inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky, Yashijiro Ozu, Robert Bresson among others. One inspiration in making this film was Yung Chang's mesmerizing film "up the Yangtze".

How would you describe your personal directing style?

My style of filming is either direct cinema or cinema verite. The film was all shot on one camera. Some people have described the film as having a gentle or unbiased touch.

What is the main thread of the story depicted in the film?

The story is about three land rights activists fighting against their corrupt government and the unaccountable Western institutions that prop it up. The film is about the personal costs of their activism and the corrupting and corrosive nature of power.
