Kristina in 10 frames
1. What film made you fall in love with cinema?
Honestly, Shrek or other animated movie that I watched when I was little. It was fun back then, but now I realize hidden messages that are in each of those films. I was very engaged and emotional, and all of those films made a huge impact on me. That’s when I realized how powerful and touching cinema can be.
2. What are the 3 best European films you have seen in the last year?
Triangle of Sadness, El hoyo (The Platform), V síti (Caught in the Net).
3. What does Europe mean to you?
A place where despite our differences, we can be united. Universal values that aim to make the world a more welcoming, sustainable and open place.
4. What do you like the most about your country that makes it unique?
Ambition, courage and honesty. I believe that Slovaks are extremely intelligent and driven, and can achieve great things. Slovakia truly has some great minds out here 🙂
5. Your favorite film theatre? What do you like about it?
Kino Lumiere in Bratislava. It’s very oldschool and classic. I love that it’s cherishing cinema and isn’t commercial. You can’t buy popcorn there and people usually stay until the end of credits, which is rare in commercial cinemas.
6. What is your dream job in the film industry?
A Film Research in the Documentary.
7. Which film director would you like to be?
I would like to be my own 🙂
8. Which film character do you most identify with?
Mavis from Hotel Transylvania, or if I can choose from TV series – that would be Robin Scherbatsky from How I Met Your Mother.
9. Your favorite soundtrack or song?
Pachelbel’s Canon in D as adapted by Marvin Hamlisch for Robert Redford’s searing drama Ordinary People (1980).
10. If you had to live in a movie, which one would you like it to be?
Thelma & Louise.
