Czech director Hynek Bočan was born on 29.4.1938 in Prague and he belonged to up and coming Czech New Wave.We can find his name signed under big portion of films such as Pasťák, Parta Hic, Tvář za sklem, Smích se lepí na paty,S čerty nejsou žerty nebo Bumerang. At the lean time when film studio didn´t offer him any job he got hooked by TV and made lots of films and series. It was joy to talk to director who spent half of the century in film making business at Letní Filmová škola in Uherské Hradiště. He cooperated with real legends of Czech film and got tons of experience under his belt. When we had a chance we asked him some questions to which he duly replied.
America say that it is a country of unlimited possibilities.We won´t discuss it since another big nation once stated that by them“ Tomorrow means yesterday“.Every American lives his „American dream“ which is run by dollars and has a hope that even the poorest person can become a millionaire.Again we won´t discuss it since even in our country many poor people became millionaries, but we doubt their fair way to wealth.
Nevertheless story of Hal Needham is real classic story how poor man became a millionaire by dedication, hard way and big effort.He was born in 1931 and became the most famous personality in Hollywood, who came from stuntman to actor to director.Apart some box office hits he put some „ first“ under his belt, too.He was the first man who tested airbag, first director who used unused scenes at the end of the movie, during credits.A car owned by him reached as first one a supersonic speed.To make that interview complete, it took us 7 months but an interesting story was compiled. Sadly Hal died from cancer on 25.10.2013 so this story is well fitted tribute and epilogue.
American director, producer and screenwriter James L. Brooks is extraordinary and talented man .Without film education he got into CBS, where he acted as an usher and worked for them as a writer. He continued writing for further shows which became successful and then in 1979 he wrote and co-produced a movie called Starting Over.Next project was Terms of Endearment for which he collected three Academy Awards.in 1984 he founded his own television and film company Gracie Films.Three years later while working for Tracey Ullman Show he hired Matt Groening and they created popular-to be- series The Simpsons. His further successful films were Broadcast News, As Good as It Gets, and also collaborated at movies Jerry McGuire, Big,The War of Roses. Apart many nominations for Academy Awards and winning many of them he was also nominated for 47 Emmy Awards winning 20 of them. We wrote him and asked if he would answer our questions to which he agreed. We got them back two years later due to his workload but still were very happy with that.
One of the guests of FebioFest 2019 was Chilean director Valeria Sarmiento. We took an interest in her not only because she was a wife of important Chilean director Raúl Ruiz, but also because they both had to escape from Chile after Junta coup´d´etat and start new life in France. Although we are not familiar with her films, aforementioned facts urged us to make interview with her.
British director Jim Loach is a son of much respected and acclaimed director Ken Loach. He arrived to Zlín Film Festival between shooting just for 17 hours during which he managed to open screening of his film Measures of the man ........and gave us and interview. We didn´t know about his existence up until about month ago when we saw his movie Oranges and Sunshine, which we liked very much. But we fell in love with Jim within 20 minutes since he is very modest, nice, friendly and approachable and we liked his attitude towards filming.
