World famous director Michel Franco answered questions from fans at a Q&A at the 54th International Antalya Film Festival.

Stating that filmmaking is his way of life, Franco said, “In every film I make there is a reaction from the previous film. This is something important for me. I always think about what my next film will be. I am a producer and I question. Actually everybody says ‘freestyle and do what you want.’ But it’s very important to control the film. It has to have a chronological order. Bringing ideas together and focusing are points that are not to be missed.”

 “I DON’T WANT TO GO TO HOLLYWOOD!”

Answering a question on his career plans, he said, “I’m not going to make different films in the years to come, but I do want to make interesting films at different countries. I don’t wish to go to Hollywood.”

“I POUR OUT MY OBSESSIONS INTO THE SCRIPT”       

Remarking on how he pours out his obsessions into the script, Franco said, “My biggest obsession is the fear of growing old. After that, it’s how to survive life.”
