Ebertfest Interview – Director Pablo Berger – Blancanieves (Snow White)

In this interview, I’m talking to Pablo Berger, the director behind Blancanieves, which played at Ebertfest.

This film is a silent, black and white Spanish version of the Snow White tale, which follows a young woman whose life is filled with hardships as her caregivers pass away, leaving her in the care of her father, who was paralyzed in a bullfighting ring, and her domineering stepmother, who forces her to work as a servant in the house.

I saw this film at Ebertfest and was blown away. It was my favorite of the festival, and clearly a lot of care and love went into it’s making.

Pablo and I discuss the challenges getting the film made, the score, and what it means for the film to screen at Ebertfest.

A special thanks to Pablo Berger for being very kind about my mispronunciations. The film doesn’t have a US distributor yet, but hopefully you will be able to see it soon.
