Interview with filmmaker József Gallai - A Guidebook to Killing Your Ex

Straight-Jacket Guerrilla Film Festival (2017)

What does your film express about today's generation?                                                                         
I believe that our generation may have forgotten how to listen and pay attention to other people. We are not cautious enough and we can never know who we want to play a game with. My film is ready to deal with people who were not cautious enough and believed they could do anything with a dangerous person.

What social circumstances lead you to make your new film?
We all live and experience a virtual world where the most vital factor is how you can pretend that you are happy. You need to upload where you spent your holiday, who you fucked with and how many friends you have. All of these are based on an universal untruth. Many people are alone since they chase merits that do not exist, moreover never existed at all. The protagonist of the film, John Doe was able to recognize these false merits and only focused his final goal.

What do you think about the PINK8 Manifesto & Punk Cinema?
I believe it is a great addition to the universe of filmmaking where many talented people can meet and change their ideas.

What's next for you?
I am currently working on a short film entitled Echoes. Shooting will start in November. In case of being interested, you can follow it on:
