A huge thank you to everyone who joined us on our virtual Q&A with Director and Producer Arthur Jones and Producer Giorgio Angelini, we hope you enjoyed your time! Stay tuned to our other live sessions coming up soon.
This year, Perspectives Film Festival is proud to see the Southeast Asian premieres of a wide range of films that explore the multifaceted concept of Truth. Amongst these films are Feels Good Man and Farewell Amor. In two virtual Q&A sessions, our programming team sits down with the filmmakers of Feels Good Man and Farewell Amor to discuss their films.
We ask questions to dig deeper into the production process, the challenges and rewards of working on their directorial debut features and the filmmakers’ intentions and hopes for their films.
These Q&A sessions will be available on PFF’s Facebook page and Instagram TV.
Feels Good Man Q&A with Arthur Jones & Giorgio Angelini (26 Oct 2020)
Although Arthur Jones may have only marked his directorial debut recently with the film Feels Good Man (2020), he is no stranger to the industry. Jones has an outstanding portfolio being an art director and motion graphics designer for many journalists and other fellow filmmakers.
Giorgio Angelini is a producer, director and writer. His previous feature, which he both directed and produced, Owned: A Tale of Two Americas, was in the official selection of the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Prior to his career in film, Angelini has had a long career in the creative arts — he toured in bands like The Rosebuds and Bishop Allen, and pursued a career in architecture and design.
Feels Good Man centres around Pepe the Frog, a comic character turned iconic meme and political symbol. The film aims to challenge our perception of “memosphere”, or the culture of memes within the internet sphere, while urging viewers to ponder about the effects of the internet as a new platform for “alternative news”.
