Interview with filmmaker Alejandra y Jorge

Boob-Therapy, The Musical will be screening at the Straight-Jacket Guerrilla Film Festival

*How did you get into making films?
We worked in the audiovisual area for more than 15 years, since childhood we were interested in art, after leaving school we studied audiovisual and dance.

*What inspired you to make your movie?
We rely on a performance by Irina Gallardo, protagonist of this story, we create a script for her to star. What would happen if a woman has senatorial powers? answering this question we developed the plot of the film.

*How has your style evolved?
We have adapted to work with a low budget, but still we care about the image and the content in what we do, although sometimes it can be comedy it must have critical content. Thanks to the experience in our accomplishments, we have evolved to develop our own style of conscious art and to go from making short films or music videos, we go on to make our first musical feature.

*Tell us any strange or funny stories while making the film?
We believe that what most marked the shooting of the project was the death of our artistic partner Daughter of Perra, it was very difficult for us to accept and be able to continue, but after a while we believe it was important to finish the project as a tribute to our friend.
Maybe something funny could be that sometimes the team was just us, Alejandra and Jorge, acting and on camera, Alejandra, in addition to acting, manipulated the equipment.

*The Misrule Film Movement & Pink8 manifesto bring what to mind?
That although they tell you that without a budget, without the support of brands or governments, your projects cannot be achieved, we manage to finish and only place the ElefanteGonorrea logo and it is a project made with the friends of independent cinema.

*What can we expect from your next film?
It will be epic.
