The interview is a crucial step in the making of your documentary film. How do you build the relationship between the director and the protagonists? How to understand your protagonists in relation to their personalities and their stories? How can the interviews illustrate their uniqueness? What approaches should you choose according to your documentary style? These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this workshop in order to best conduct your interviews and make the most appropriate choices for your work.
The workshop will be given in French but questions may be asked in English.
Amandine GAY divides her time between creation and advocacy. Filmmaker-producer (Speak Up -2017; A Story of One’s Own -2021), writer-scholar (A Chocolate Doll -2021) and afrofeminist activist (founder of Adoptee Awareness Month in the francophone world), she defines herself as a political author working to reclaim the narrative as an act of emancipation. In 2022, she moves back to Montreal to fulfill this ambition by creating a Black owned production company: Caïssa Productions.
