PEOPLE OF NOWHERE, directed by Lior Sperando, was the winner of Best FILM at the July 2016 Under 5min. FEEDBACK Film Festival. It was one of the most popular films that has ever played at the festival.
Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?
Lior Sperando: I have heard and read different opinions about the wave of Syrian refugees who try to make their way in to the EU.
But Seeing the people behind the headlines with my own eyes, and feeling their deep struggle, broke my heart.
I wanted to show what I saw in the Greek island.
MT: From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?
LS: The shootings took about a week and the post another month.
So 5 weeks all together
MT: How would you describe your short film in two words!?
