Interview with filmmaker Ungyu Yeo by the Straight-Jacket Guerrilla Film Festival

Making 100 Friends From All Over The World – premier at the Straight-Jacket Guerrilla Film Festival

How did you get into making films?

I’m a movie buff. Sometimes I was into a bunch of Hollywood movies, and sometimes I was into some deep European art films. But when it comes down to it, I always wanted to be a film-maker since I was little.

What inspired you to make your movie?

I love traveling. I’ve visited around 32 countries so far. Along the way I just wanted to film something fun while I’m traveling.

How has your style evolved?

Making 100 Friends From All Over The World is not only a travel documentary but also a mockumentary and documentary comedy. I love the whole process that we reach the truth from the untruth.

Tell us any strange or funny stories while making the film?

I hate geckos! (You know what I mean?)

The Misrule Film Movement & Pink8 manifesto bring what to mind?

Freedom.

What can we expect from your next film?

I’m not sure yet but I think I will make something meaningful in the UK soon.
