30 Ago An interview with Nisha Gaëlle Iarijhon, director of “OFF”
She started by studying law in Madagascar, then towards the end of her studies, she has been able to experience acting in a television series in her own country, and in a short film. After graduating, she decided to move to Morocco to study film.
How much of your personal experience did you put into this film, which is a reflection of the construction of your expressive universe?
Finding your place in the art world is not easy. What in particular pushed you to do this project?
What advice would you give to young directors who are entering the world of cinema for the first time?
First of all, it is to document yourself. Draw inspiration from the vision of other filmmakers, in order to give a new breath to the cinema. I would also like to add that one should not be afraid of constraints. It’s a way to experiment with a new format. I think constraints are necessary to push us to look for our creative genius.
What are the projects you are currently working on?
