The Amateurs Club is a free DIY film school, hosted by Somerset House Studios and Forest Fringe, featuring each month a different professional from the world of film. For June we are looking at documentary with Krista Burāne.
Krista is a Latvian artist and filmmaker who creates interdisciplinary projects that switch between various cultural areas – documentaries, theatre, photography and education. As a director, scriptwriter, editor, teacher and photographer, Krista believes that artworks must become an event in people’s lives, create new experiences, wake up emotions and thoughts about who and why we are.
Krista will be exploring the relationship between fictional and documentary filmmaking through discussion of her films The Fairytale of Empty Space (winner of the National Film Award for best documentary and best animation 2017) and Māra (nominated for National Film Award for best documentary and best director).
