The Encounters screening went really well. It is very strange seeing the film on the big screen in front of a public audience, most of whom don’t know me or any of the background to the project. I tried to put myself in their shoes, but if I am honest I had absolutely know idea what people would make of it. It felt slightly hostile at first, but then maybe three or four minutes in something changed. Fraya and I got most of the questions in the Q & A afterwards and several people came up to me to say how moved they were by the film, which is all one can really hope for as a filmmaker. It seems each person who watches the film gets something slight different from it. The next day a young journalist from Estonia reviewed the screening in the publication Inside Encounters which is distributed around the festival. It isn’t online yet but I couldn’t help take a photo to share here. It was really nice to read a nice piece of press about film by someone who has seen the final result.
Here is a photo of the article for you to read . .
