Five Questions for Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani (THE STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY'S TEARS)

Lucky us! We managed to get Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani, the directors of The Strange Colours of Your Body's Tears, to answer five questions for the Vanguard Blog.Their Giallo-inspired film is playing at the Festival this year.

1. There are many different definitions of Giallo, but how would you define Giallo?
Incredible music, incredible settings, incredible murders! An extraordinary mix between sex and death which put the viewer in a strange position, lost in a game with his point of view!  

2. What are your favorite experimental films?
Meshes of the Afternoon  by Maya Deren, Scorpio Rising by Kenneth Anger, Nightshots by Stephen Dwoskin, Un chant d'amour by Jean Genet, The Sex of Self-Hatred by Solomon Nagler, The Dead Man 2: Return of the Dead Man by Aryan Kaganoff, The Big Shave by Martin Scorsese, Mamori by Karl Lemieux


3. What film(s) do you consider an influence on your work that people might find surprising?

4. Since Giallo influenced slasher films, is there one specific slasher film that you think lives up to its Giallo influences?
If we consider Brian de Palma's Dressed To Kill as a slasher, it is the one! If not, there are some bit and pieces of giallo in the beginning of The Burning, or in movies as Ripper: Letter From Hell and Tuno negro.

5. What is the one piece of advice you would give to emerging filmmakers?
Work, work, and work.

Now that's you've researched all the movies mentioned in this post, you can get your tickets for a screening of The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears, which is playing this year's Toronto International Film Festival.

Thanks to these talented and clearly very busy filmmakers for taking the time to chat with us!
