5Q's w/Ben Cura "Creditors" Director

#1: Can you describe your movie and why somebody should see it in less than 140 characters?

There’s great acting, it’s black and white, and the subject matter is a bit of a mind-f**k. Watch it!

#2: What do you want the Borrego FilmFestival audience to know about your film that isn’t obvious from its title?

It’s not about bankers or financial institutions. Or film financiers.

#3: What is your movie making background?  Tell us about yourself.

I’m an actor. Currently filming Hans Rosenfeldt’s Marcella for ITV here in London until March next year. Creditors is my first film as a director, screenwriter, and producer.

#4: What was the biggest lesson learned in getting your film made?

Managing expectations starts with not expecting to manage others the same way you manage yourself.

#5: What does the future hold for your film and you?

For Creditors, we’ll keep seeing it through more festivals as we go. It’ll be making the rounds at the main European markets in Berlin and Cannes this year with our sales agents New Morning Films taking it there. As for myself and a new film project, I’m currently working on a script for a new film. Can’t say much more about it for now...
