The long awaited second part of the conversation with Malagasy filmmaker, producer and RFC festival director Laza is finally here.
What does it mean to be a full-time artist in a country that does not legally recognise them (No, seriously, the concept of artist as a profession does not exist)? How do you sustain a film festival amidst ongoing political instability and make people want to fund your project? How does an Island Continent break through the Franco-Anglophone barrier? And most importantly, how to watch film and change mentalities and why you need a cinema for that. You get answers to all of that AND as a special treat and as previously promised, this episode also features a selection of film clips from the RFC archive.
