ART : TECHNOLOGY : POLITICS : INSPIRATION
I was lucky enough to chat with producers of The Insatiable Moon recently, before I'd seen the film...
After watching it this is what I emailed to Rob:
"Congratulations on one of the most profoundly moving films I think I've ever seen. I don't mind admitting I literally sobbed - not during but after taking in The Insatiable Moon. I still can't quite reconcile how I feel about it. It really touched me."
And Rob responded with:
"Thanks for your very kind words about the film. What you describe is the reaction a lot of people have - including me every time I see it and I know what's coming!
We have shown this to mental health professionals and charities working with the same type of people and, more profoundly to street people themselves, and the reaction is exactly the same. One guy said he couldn't speak for 2 hrs after he saw it as he couldn't process what he had seen and the impact it had. Not bad for a film that the NZ film commission refused to support because they thought it didnt have any humour and wouldn't travel as it wasn't a universal story...duh"
