"An exercise in human empathy" and "Instead of characterising these people as weird and deviant (as perhaps many would), the film casts a non-judgmental eye on the lives of people who find it hard to be accepted by others. The result is a glimpse into a hidden world that is vulnerable and all about loneliness as well as the very primal human need to bond with others and to feel loved." - Bianca-Olivia Nita for Modern Times Review
Silicone Soul just screened in Cahul, Moldova at MOLDOX International Film Festival. Director Melody Gilbert and producer Dumitrita Pacicovschi attended the film screening and had a wonderful time! In Moldova, Melody also taught a week-long advanced documentary workshop (Moldox Lab Inspiration Workshop) for emerging filmmakers, along with Gordon Quinn from Kartemquin Films.
Moldova was warm, welcoming and full of sweet grapes and crunchy apples. We had fun hanging around doc hungry Moldovans, international guests and Gordon Quinn (executive producer at Kartemquin Films) who inspired young documentary filmmakers and shared inspiring stories from his 50+ career in documentaries.
Here are some pictures:
