-Who is Nina Kazè?
I am a world citizen born in Iran & residing in Los Angeles for the biggest portion of my life – pursuing my dreams & passion for acting and story telling which by default has lead me to become a musician & a filmmaker.
-What inspired you to become a filmmaker?
I’ve made two short films so far and both were sprung about by a sense of urgency and a need to speak about my humanity. To say something I felt deeply about at the time & had to share with others. And it had to be made through an abstract medium like film.
-Do you think that cinema can bring change to society?
Absolutely. Cinema throughout its history and from its inception has been a political and social platform to effectively share real opinions or fictional magical type of story tellings that spark genius and movement in others.
It is one of the most important tools in bringing change to society and connecting us as people.
-What would you change in the world?
Inequality and injustice which comes from all kinds of ism’s such as sexism, racism, classism, ageism etc etc..
The most dangerous thing is when good intended people are divided because of their sex, race, age and even political views.
We now more than ever as a world need to unite.
The past two and half years has proven that on a global scale.
-Where do you see the film industry going in the next 100 years?
I think with technological advances and visual capabilities like 3D screenings and such that there will be films you could partake in as in feel you are physically in each scene and stuff like that ..
Wild animations & who knows even actual aliens starring in movies!
But I also think there will always be an art house movement to preserve the classic movie theater experience. The deep character driven stories and films & film makers like “John Cassavetes” addressing an intimate honest look into peoples lives.
A world where there will still be 35MM films and projectors with packed theaters..
As I mentioned I am a dreamer and like John Lennon said I know “I’m not the only one”.
