Lea Bloch wins two awards at the 76th Locarno Film Festival
Lea Bloch’s short film project was supported by the Story Lab. Now, the young film-maker has received two awards at the Locarno Film Festival. We congratulate Lea Bloch and invite her to take part in a brief interview:
What was it like to premiere your film at the Locarno Film Festival?
It was an incredible honor to mark my world premiere at the Locarno Festival – a unique experience.
How did people respond to your short film?
The most common reaction was that the film was thought-provoking and stimulated discussion – I was delighted by that. After all, that was the original aim of the film.
Your short film looks at an important issue: sexualized violence. Why is this important to you?
Almost every woman is aware of this topic and talks to her closest girlfriends about it – I’m no different. But it was important to me that I showed it from both sides.
