Chile in Toronto: Interview with Sebastian Lelio Director of 'Gloria' and Star Paulina Garcia

Gloria, which just finished playing Tiff, directed by Sebastian Lelio and starring Paulina Garcia has been selected to represent Chile in the Foreign Language race for the 86th Academy Awards ®

Fresh off its highly successful North American premiere at The Telluride Film Festival, Gloria was Special Presentation at the Toronto Int'l Film Festival.

I was lucky to be able to spend an hour speaking with director Sebastián Lelio and

2013 Berlin Film Festival Best Actress Award winner Paulina Garcia, the film’s star.

Paulina Garcia in real life barely resembled Gloria who is a seemingly comfortable “woman of a certain age” who still feels young…like me, and also like me, she enjoys dancing. Her children have lives of their own as does her former husband, she has a job and while comfortable, she is a bit at a loss for a place and for love. I had not realized that in fact those people I dance with are perhaps also looking for love – all I ever see them do is dance.

But like Gloria, though lonely, they are making the best of their situation. Her fragile happiness changes the day she meets Rodolfo. Their intense passion, to which Gloria gives her all, leaves her vacillating between hope and despair - until she uncovers a new strength and realizes that, in her golden years, she can shine brighter than ever.

Speaking with Paulina Garcia, I was first struck with how unlike the character Gloria she was. Sophisticated and refined, speaking perfect English, we related on a different level from how I related to her in the film, and I had related intimately; I had identified completely with Gloria and I had thought I would, in fact, be meeting Gloria herself.

Paulina told me how unusual it is to be in every scene. Playing such a character focused so deeply into life forced her to move the center of herself to a different point. After the movie had been shot, she felt the pain in her very bones from the different positions and motions of Gloria’s person. When it was over, she felt like she had emerged from a very deep ocean dive. Acting is on the surface, but the character played is really more like an iceberg.

Sebastian added that the relationship between Gloria and everyone else is not the action but in the air around them. It is the anti-matter you experience in the film, not the plot. The spotlight was always upon her. There was not a single frame in which Gloria’s body was not present. Every single scene is about how she is feeling about people, things and the world. And she reflects the world, as it is today in Santiago, Chile – discontented and seeking ways to take action against the discontent.

The relationship built between Sebastian and Paulina prior to filming was not based on the film, but on aligning their minds. It was an unusual friendship that was built between the director and actress. He gave her things to read unrelated to the film, she read Cassavetes on Cassavetes, (the name Gloria was not spurious); he gave her quotes, information on vortexes and whatever else interested him in those days. He was very clear about how personal the film would be, creating layers of emotion and artistry. Once they began working together, they shared a sort of mindful shorthand. He might say, “Do your own vortex” and she would define the world in her own terms so she could do her part. Paulina/Gloria was the point of the film and everything had to go around her, as if she were the vortex.

The other character in the film – whom we did not discuss at all, but who was an extraordinary counterweight to Gloria, was Sergio Hernandez who played Rodolfo. Very sexy and very soulful, he is dogged in his pursuit of Gloria and is dogged by his “ex-wife” and daughters. He has played in Sebastian Lelio’s previous films La Sagrada Familia in 2006 which I caught during my first trip to Chile as an guest of the Valdivia Film Festival in ‘05 and in El Ano del Tigre, his third film which played Locarno in 2011. Both these were also “insistent observations of characters going through evolutionary crossroads: family as a sacred trap; the interest in the tension that exists between a person and character; and the conviction that film is a face-on battle”, to quote Sebastian.

La Sagrada Familia was shot in 3 days in 35mm, a true indie film. It was a sort of “punk” film and it met with great success and so Sebastian could access national funds to make his second film Navidad which along with some private investment was finally paid off two months ago. Navidad was about teenage runaways going through a sort of initiation into the carney world. He directed Year of the Tiger just after Chile’s major earthquake and Fabula put in the money ($100,000) for this urgent film. It is a testament to the Year Zero and was shot in 12 days. It went on to play Toronto and Locarno. These are all available along with interviews on Festival Scope.

The year 2005 was the year that a new generation of filmmakers was beginning to create Chilean cinema as we know it today. Not only Sebastian Lelio withLa Sagrada Familia, but the producer of Gloria and Year of the Tiger, Fabula’s Pablo Larrain (along with his brother Juan de Dios Larrain) was developing his breakout film, Tony Manero and had just finished Fuga. Pablo also wrote and directed Post Mortem , produced El año del tigre , produced and directed No and produced this year’s Sundance hit Crystal Fairy. It was Diego Izquierdo whose Sexo con Amor we were repping who brought us to Valdivia that year as he was working on El rey de los huevones . It was the year En la Cama by Matias Bizes ( La vida de los peces ) was the most popular film in Chile and films were finally breaking from the post-Pinochet trauma. The “other Sebastian”, Sebastian Silva, was the inspiration behind the writers of Mala Leche and La Sagrada Familia, and was writing the first film he would also direct, La vida me mata (Life Kills Me).

Gloria was such a fine work of art that it was developed in the Cannes Residency (Cinefondation) program and garnered national funds for its production. It was screened as a Work in Progress first in Chile’s Sanfic and then in San Sebastian in 2012 where it won the Cine in Construccion Award. Sebastian has recently received a Guggenheim fellowship and support of the Daad Berliner Kunstlerprogram for the development of his new projects.

To be witness to Chile’s spectacular growth in the international business gives me such a thrill. I can’t wait to see Sebastian’s next film which he is working on now in the Berlinale Residency (September – December), writing it with an eye toward co-production. The new film explores masculine emotions. Perhaps it will once again star Paulina Garcia.

Interview with Nadia Dresti

Nadia Dresti, Delegate of the Artistic Direction, Head of International at the Locarno International Film Festival talks to Susan Kouguell about Industry Days (August 10-12), Step In and Carte Blanche.

Nadia Dresti: “The film festival’s role has to become more a place to help a film to be released afterwards, and Locarno is a perfect place to put these people together and mix.”

Dresti is passionate about her work, and about spotlighting independent filmmakers from countries who face challenges getting their work noticed and distributed. Nadia and I met at her office this week to discuss the Locarno International Film Festival’s various initiatives that will take place during Industry Days.

Dresti: “We received 1,300 submissions, and Carlo Chatrian and his team saw between 500-700 films around the world, so 2,000 films altogether. Carlo selected 100 new films. What about the other films? Some go to smaller festivals, but more than 1,000 titles don’t go anywhere; they will not find a release. There is a gap with this small release possibility and the gap is getting bigger. I think the system is wrong.”

The Industry Office

The Industry Office of the Locarno Film Festival was designed to support producers and agents presenting films at the festival by connecting them with international sales and distribution professionals, and exhibitors. Their goal is to play an active role in the support of auteur films; whether launching a new project or extending and optimizing existing services and initiatives, the Industry Office aims to support sales agents, distributors, producers and exhibitors in their respective tasks, ranging from the conception to the release of independent art-house cinema.

Nadia Dresti: “Every activity is tailor made. Most important are the films, and around the films – the producers, buyers, and so on – and the types of films that we believe in.”

Industry Days

Launched in 2010, the Locarno Film Festival’s Industry Days offer international film industry professionals the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive series of initiatives designed for them. The goal -- to facilitate networking. By supporting the sales agents and producers who are presenting films at the Festival, they put them in contact with buyers, distributors and exhibitors. Industry Days also develops through specially organized and exclusive screenings, alongside works-in-progress sessions, discussions, round tables and events that take place under the umbrella of the Industry Home Base, encouraging every opportunity for exchange. These are combined with two further initiatives, Carte Blanche and Step In.

Carte Blanche

Nadia Dresti: “We have Carte Blanche, an initiative we started three years ago, showing films in postproduction by emerging talents from a different country in Asia, Africa, Latin America or Southeast Europe. This year Carte Blanche is dedicated to Chile.”

Carte Blanche will screen seven films in postproduction. Each film will be introduced by its producer and director to the various international sales agents, distributors and festival programmers in order to facilitate post-production and sales partnerships. Following each screening, there will be a Q&A session, during which the industry professionals will have the opportunity to connect with the producers. A three-person industry professional jury will select the best film that will receive a cash prize to support the completion of the film.

Nadia Dresti: “There is a lot of emerging talent. We saw 30 films in postproduction, we selected seven and we invited the seven producers to introduce their films, and Chile brings the directors. We have 20 people from Chile to introduce at Locarno. This is great visibility for them; they are honored as a country -- it’s a win-win. We bring filmmakers to producers. It also gives sales companies time to discover new films, to see the seven films, which helps the producers. In Piazza Grande we’re going to show Gloria directed by Sebastián Lelio, who was in competition in 2011 with El El Año del Tigre. Juan de Dios Larraín, producer of both titles, is on our official jury. CinemaChile is hosting the Industry Days opening party.

Step In

Now in its second year, Step In, an initiative designed as an exchange platform in which new promising strategies for distribution, exhibition and sales of auteur cinema are discussed and developed in small, closed working sessions.

Nadia Dresti: “Last year we had a think tank and decided to focus on eastern countries where theaters are closing down and art-house films are hardly released. We invited key players from different countries -- Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic to come to Locarno and sit down with sales companies and other buyers.”

This think-tank initiative, focusing on issues of distribution for auteur European cinema in Central and Eastern Europe, is organized in collaboration with Europa International, Europa Distribution and Europa Cinemas. This year Step In will wrap up last year’s focus on the festivals of the region, giving voice to professionals of the area, including Tallinn’s Baltic Event, When East Meets West in Trieste, Kino Pavasaris in Vilnius, Sofia Meetings, Romanian Days in Cluj, CineLink in Sarajevo, Connecting Cottbus, New Horizons in Warsaw and the Art Film Festival in Bratislava. But we decided to open the think tank to additional European territories as well, to compare experiences. International sales agents, distributors, exhibitors and funders will discuss key issues of distribution. We also invited Us industry people like Eugene Hernandez from Lincoln Center and Ryan Werner from Radius-tw.

Nadia Dresti: “Step In day takes place on Sunday. First, in the morning, there will be a presentation about the Russian market; the state of distribution and exhibition of art-house films in the Russian market. Among the presenters will be an expert from uniFrance, a big exhibitor from Russia, and three distributors from Russia.”

The working session – the brainstorming part of the morning, gathers distributors, sales agents, members of Europa Distribution, Europa International and Europa Cinemas, some funders, festivals, and co-production markets. After an introduction of the key issues, participants will break into groups to work on a specific challenge pertaining to the future of distribution of art-house films in Europe.

Nadia Dresti: “There will be five working tables that will include different buyers and sellers, discussions of anti-piracy, and so on – we want these people to sit down and talk. This is going to last one-and-a-half hours, then the five different moderators will come out with a statement, present their results, and discuss suggestions about how we can work better together to get a particular film released.”
