Interview with Livia De Paolis at Dances With Films 2013
Writer /Director/Producer talks about her latest film,”EMOTICON,” with Rich Girl Host Wynter Lauren at the Dances With Films Festival. Elena Gallenti (Livia De Paolis) is an anthropology graduate student struggling to complete her thesis on ‘modern means of communication.’ All that changes when she meets her new boyfriend’s (Michael Cristofer) teenage kids (Miles Chandler and Diane Guerrero), who are going through their own journeys of self-discovery. Through these relationships and the help of her PHD advisor (Carol Kane), Elena comes to a better understanding of how to navigate love and intimacy in the digital age. Ultimately they develop a bond that strikes a balance between the old world and the new, and everyone’s longing to find true emotional sense in both.
EMOTICON screens Wednesday, June 5th, 2013 at 7:15pm at the TCL Chinese Theaters 6801 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028. In the Hollywood & Highland Complex-3rd Level
