Interview with Alejandro Naranjo the director of “Black Kisses”, interviewer Javier Garcia Puerto
"Behind all these dark concepts of the devil are only the fragility of the people looking for a little of love." - Alejandro Naranjo
The film introduces us to four witnesses of the devil seeking refuge in faith from the torments of love, but takes us somewhere far beyond, where the earth is on fire and bodies squirm and struggle to bring the demonic closer to the flesh. The eternal fight between the good and the evil (the now fancy yin and yang) faces a new challenge. Naranjo’s characteristic filming style renders the camera invisible, making us feel how the characters’ torments come from the paranormal.
Alejandro Naranjo (1985) is a Colombian filmmaker whose work began focused on creative documentaries and from there he has explored hybrid forms of cinematographic expression. In his works, cinema becomes visual anthropology as a way to understand certain traditions and the deep essence of the human soul.
