Interview with filmmaker Miguel Miyahira
Straight-Jacket Guerrilla Film Festival will be screening Gen Hi8
*How did you get into making films?
I always liked the stories, and when I studied audiovisual, I loved the expressiveness of the cinematographic language and its narrative structures.
*What inspired you to make your movie?
In this case, I set myself the challenge of creating a feature film with hi8 formats and justifying its use in a 90s context
*How has your style evolved?
In this film I used camera narrative styles that I really like. Pretty handycam and a little cinema verité
*Tell us any strange or funny stories while making the film?
I had to search more than 5 borrowed hi8 cameras. Only 1 worked.
*The Misrule Film Movement & Pink8 manifesto bring what to mind?
Rupture of rules, search of new forms, underground, passion
*What can we expect from your next film?
As always, honesty
