David Kinsella, film producer and artist photographer, (Ireland – Norway) & Rodica Draghincescu (France) interview

 

 

 

Coming from Belfast, growing up with bombs, death and sadness, we always found happiness in even the saddest episode.

 

 

 

 

Rodica Draghincescu  : – David Kinsella, an artist photographer, a film producer, a socially and politically engaged creator of images and sounds, present everywhere in the world, where life is neither simple nor peaceful, he intervenes where the rights of people are violated! Several times rewarded by many international awards for his photos and documentaries, for his artistic position and at the same time, citizen. David Kinsella possesses a tumultuous energy of Irish and a lucidity and a proper logic, a cold and sure eye of Norwegian country where he lives at this moment. David, where did this passion for the visual arts and their permanent argument come from, and especially the call of the cinema? Since when do your first attempts date these artistic domains?

 

David Kinsella  : – “Everybody is good at something, but everybody does not find out what they are good at in life”

As a typical left handed person, I have suffered from dyslexia, so I hated school, always knowing the answers but couldn’t write them down.

Looking at the world in a visual way became my talent. At 16 I got a job at a local newspaper in Belfast and at sixteen and a half, I won the Press photographer of the year in Northern Ireland, the youngest ever. I had found my talent looking through a lens of a camera, and later the moving image in the form of documentary films.

 

RD. – How did you evolve from photographer to producer, director of films? And why documentaries in first position?

 

 

 

 

DK  : – After many years of success as a press photographer in Ireland and Norway, then giving master classes in Photography, I could see, I stopped learning. I needed a new creative challenge, I decided to combine my photography with a film camera, and made my first film “Love Letters from a Children’s Prison” in Russia that was then nominated by the American film institute as the documentary movie of the year.

I always wanted to give my audience something they had not seen before, be it photography, films, and now books.

“If the story is not good enough, then it is not personal enough”.

I hated to compromise, always wanting to develop the form of film, and breaking all the rules, I found it easier to be my own producer, as my creative vision was always radical, I was always wanting to push the creative boundary’s, I started to create Hybrid documentaries, made in a way they look and feel like fictional movies.

 

RD  : – Who inspires you from reality? Past or present? The future? Where do you find the sources, the material for your productions?

 

DK  :- I live in a small town in Norway, away from the main stream film world. I didn’t want other film makers to influence my unique style.

I wished to develop my personal signature style, I believe being in a film environment it is very easy to get influenced by others and slowly but surely, one loses that personal style.

I believe every project is a reflection of ourselves, our hopes, dreams, weaknesses, strengths. I create creative reality, a form of documentaries, but I never watch documentary films, as I see more writers, than visual cinematic writers.

I am always inspired by fictional directors, and so my work developed in the direction of Hybrid documentaries that look like fictional movies.

As for my future ?, I just finished a book I commissioned  called Logodnica (The Fiancée) My personal story of when I met a beautiful lady from Moldova and tried to change her life for ever and for good. I wanted to make her dreams come true.

 

 

 

 

RD  : What are you trying to reveal, to transmit through your creations?

 

DK  : – I believe we focus on what we are missing in our lives, our dreams for the future, and help others not as strong as us. Using art as a weapon of good in the creative form, be it film or books, we can fulfil our dreams, and help others on our journey.

At present I make personal portraits of my own life, Inspired by my sadness, my dreams, my wishes, my reality, the darker the story the more beautiful and visual it becomes, again I give the audience what they have not seen before, and what they don’t expect.

As I said my present movie and book project Logodnica (The Fiancée) has been my focus in the last years.

I have been inspired by my failed relationship with a Eastern European women from Moldova, she broke my heart and soul and my belief in humanity, so recently, I commissioned a book to turn my real story into fiction, Logodnica (The Fiancée) was written in Romanian, and became the top 3 bestseller in Romania.

I needed a Eastern European writer to understand the actions and the mentality of my Moldovan girlfriend, as in Western Europe, she was hated for her actions, lies and deception. In many ways I needed the writer to show me why my relationship failed.

The Fiancée is to be the third film in my journey to finally understand my life and use my art as my personal CATHARSIS. Forgiveness! The spell of sadness needs to be broken.

As a Romanian female reader said “David, I want to find a hammer and hit your x girlfriend on the head again and again, I was infuriated, like myself, every eastern European women needs to read Logodnica (The Fiancée), and every western women will be shocked, we will see and understand east and west are two different worlds. I started my creative journey, to understand where I learnt that good will always win over evil. “The WALL” from North Korea and Northern Ireland, I had a young actor playing David Kinsella.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The Temptress” where evil wins over good, here I had myself animated as the main character set in South Sudan. and my new and present project, when good will always win over evil. I am working with film producer Dan Bulac winner of The  Palme d’Or with the Logodnica (The Fiancée) a book and movie, I wanted the story to be perfect first, make the book, then the screenplay then the movie.

I needed to know and see if I could get understanding and empathy in Eastern Europe, so we made the best seller book Logodnica (The Fiancée).

 

RD  : How do you design the documentation work for the chosen topics?

 

DK  : – Every project, finds its own visual and storytelling approach through in depth research, with the goal of always pushing the boundaries of visual storytelling.

I would say my projects find me, either I am traveling promoting another project, or holding inspirational workshops.

As with my North Korean/ Northern Ireland movie “The WALL”,

 

 

 

 

I was returning home from Latvia and the man sitting beside me asked what was my occupation?, I said “I am a film maker”, he said he was the deputy leader of the North Korean friendship association, and would I be interested in making a film in North Korea?. Or as my movie and book project Logodnica (The Fiancée), this was my real life story.

Research is essential to achieve the knowledge needed. Research can take over a year in finding the idea, characters ,developing an idea, making a pilot film, then finding the finance to finally go into production. On average each project can take 5-7 years to complete.

 

RD  : What actants and protagonists, characters and actors do you use to re-tell stories that have marked a society and a time, a mentality and a destiny?

 

DK  : – As I said previously, I have become the producer, director and main character in my personal projects the last 8 years.

The more honest, the more intimate, private, open and totally naked to the audience with all my imperfections, the more shy and closed we become in our personal lives.

Again with a lot of research we find the great characters who have a story to tell.

I have focused on teenagers, and nearly all my projects have a girl or women as the main character. I choose women, as I find them more interesting than men.

As in my “A Beautiful Tragedy” a Russian Ballet school, knowing I would use 5-7 years to complete the film, I picked the class that would finish the school at the year I believed the filming would be finished.

 

 

 

 

Find the girl with the most issues, talent, and could actually talk, not just smile. We found Oksana Skorik who now is a principal dancer at Mariinsky theatre in St Petersburg.

At the age of 15 Oksana said “Suffering forms an individual”, no other girl had the legs, talent and mentality as Oksana.

 

 

 

 

We knew she was the character we needed.

Making personal visual projects, does not make us better people, we see our limitations and imperfections, and we need to take all the sadness from our characters, and so we stop smiling.

 

RD  : To which audience do you intend your works?

 

DK  : – I  BELIEVE  WE  ARE  PUT  ON  THIS  WORLD  TO  HELP  OTHERS. Coming from Belfast and the “troubles” I decided to find humanity even in the saddest scenario.  I want to show hope, so I try to make stories that a universal audience can relate too in their own lives, i.e love, pain, sadness.

As in Logodnica (The Fiancée) my book, I hope the book will be translated into many languages, telling my real love story,  hoping others will not make the same mistakes, and can relate to their own personal relationships. Every single person can relate to love and a broken heart.

 

RD: – Your attention is directed towards people and places that have suffered a lot or are still suffering. Russia, South Korea, Moldova, Sudan, Romania, etc. Your films point to wounds, shocking and dehumanisation, political and human situations. The cruelty of the testimonies, the words of the witnesses are accompanied by a whirlwind of historical, but also poetic images. The poetry of evil Pain. The black of negative metamorphoses. A violent poetry! Where does this underground vision that is fascinating and striking for its spectators?

 

DK  : – Coming from Belfast, growing up with bombs, death and sadness, we always found happiness in even the saddest episode.

I continued this “meaning to life” in my creative work, finding the saddest story, with my goal of finding humanity and a happy end.

The darker the story the more visually poetic I made the story, so the audience could still watch the nightmare sequences, as in “Killing Girls”, the history of abortion in Russia, was made in black and white, a full orchestra soundtrack, with slow motion and a blur effect used to keep the attention of the audience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

RD  : How and with whom take form your scenarios ?

 

DK.: – In our projects, we are looking at ourselves in the mirror, wanting to understand ourselves and our lives, our personal problems, using the form of film or literature to help us understand, and find answers to our own personal issues. Maybe we cant find happiness in our personal lives, but as a director, at least we can make a “Happy ever after” end to our projects.

 

RD  : Are you a subversive or militant filmmaker? What is your mission, all along these films that made you known and appreciated internationally (The Wall, The Whisperers, The Temptress, Killing Girls)  ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

DK  : – My mission is to find personal happiness through my work and show to myself and others “Good will always win over Evil”, give people hope even in the saddest story, including my own personal story.

I would say I subversive and militant filmmaker only in the way I refuse to conform to the rules of how we are supposed to create our films. I break every rule in the book, because the story needs to live its own life. We are all different, so each story needs to be different too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

RD  : – What do you discover through these films? And how do you react, as a human being, beyond your mission as an artist?

DK  : – With patience, and time, we will always find a happy end. I used 2 extra years waiting for a “happy ending” to both Killing Girls and A Beautiful Tragedy.

I remember my x girlfriend from my new book Logodnica (The Fiancée) telling me: David, you are your movies, a roller coaster ride of emotion.
