What is your ultimate inspiration as a filmmaker?
I was amazed by the magic of cinema since I can remember. I recall watching The Empire of The Sun, by Steven Spielberg, in the theatre when I was around six years old, and that was with no doubt the exact moment I decided that movies would have to be my life. Since then, I was inspired by many directors, but if I have to mention some more, I would go with Billy Wilder, Terry Gilliam, Federico Fellini, Quentin Tarantino, the Cohen Brothers, and David Lynch.
