Interview with Filmmaker Isabel Restrepo (SMOKE FOR THE CLOUDS)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

SMOKE FOR THE CLOUDS was the winner of BEST SOUND & MUSIC at the August 2020 Dance & Music Festival.

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

Isabel Restrepo: My wish was to give a visual portrait of our music through film. I wanted to do it myself to be sure I could transmit to the public the Fabulae Dramatis’ concept. Which involves music, visuals, poetry, theatre and the natural elements. The short film was made also in the context of my studies of film and video art at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp.

He wanted to collaborate in the production process with me so that motivated me even more to make the production with him and with the film crew of the Royal Academy.
