Interview with Filmmaker Chris Garcia (NEW LIFE)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

NEW LIFE played to rave reviews at the May 2020 Experimental, Dance, Music Film Festival.

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

Chris Garcia: I wanted to talk about a subject that personally touched me. I wanted to show that any kind of art (dancing, acting, drawing…) could be a therapy and take a part of a rebuilding ourselves through it.

4. What was the biggest obstacle you faced in completing this film?
