LFS: The Space Between Us: Remi Itani and Rafael Manuel
FILIPIÑANA, dir. Rafael Manuel
Free on Zoom.
Celebrating a long history of London Film School students screening at LSFF, we are pleased to have alumni filmmakers Remi Itani (Drought, screening in New Shorts: Absence) and Rafael Manuel (Filipiñana, screening in UK Competition: The Double Life Of) in conversation discussing their latest work, themes and festival journeys.
Screening at LSFF 2021, their latest films share an aesthetic of quietude and space; their respective protagonists each navigating both the social intricacies and isolation of their surroundings.
LSFF’s Philip Ilson hosts them as they discuss their individual and overlapping influences and creative process, and how their journey through LFS helped them become established filmmakers.
