GoSee presents the new film by photographer and director Monica MENEZ, which was created in cooperation with LEICA S MAGAZINE. The filmmaker had her say in everything from storytelling, the realization and selection of the music or even production and direction.
She was inspired mostly by the music. “I love the old Hollywood dance movies and have always wanted to work with dancers. 'Bello' is funny and also a little bit evil – and it is about love,” says Monica in an interview on her film. “I assume that my concepts are so well received because I tell a story. As a storyteller, it is easier to gain a foothold in the film industry. And that is exactly where I feel really good because people like to see my funny ideas there. Nonetheless, I don't only see myself in film, photography is also important to me – I just want to do both.”
'BELLO' is nominated for Best Director and Best Hair at the Bokeh Fashion Film Festival in South Africa... The film is also presented at the Buenos Aires International Fashion Film Festival 2017 @baifffoficial. We'll keep our fingers crossed!
