Why and for whom do you film today?
Feature by: Alexis A. Tioseco


Why am I still filming, and for who?

This is my answer.

I think the possibility of cinema in exploring personal memory is getting interesting. So for me, from now on and in the future, my cinema will be about trying to collect the memory of being alive as a human being from a very personal point of view.

And for who? My cinema is for me. For my memory. I am imagining: what if suddenly I lost all of my memories about the smell of coffee, or the beauty of smiles, or my other perceptions of this beautiful yet absurd life? All I would need is just to see my own films, and try to gather all of the memories back by connecting my own films with other films in the world. By looking again and again through the portal of these cinemas, I think I could get my impression of life back so that I could understand who I am, why I am here, and what I am in this world.

I am collecting memories: collecting every smell, every taste, every feeling, every song of life, by making my own cinema.

Thatís my answer.

Thank you for making me think about this cinematic question.
