Panel Talk - Clara Sola

Edition 2021

The Belgian Composer Ruben De Gheselle and Costa Rican-Swedish director Nathalie Álvarez Mesén discussed their latest film Clara Sola. A soundtrack is not made overnight and various, sometimes extreme, angles to a scene should be explored. For Clara Sola, too, a technique of rough, fast and focused sketching with music formed an important part of the working and dialogue process between the two artists. In this panel they discussed some of those scenes and how they came about from initial idea to final recorded form. Ruben De Gheselle is a composer who worked on several international projects and teaches at KASK & Conservatory. Nathalie Álvarez Mesén is a Costa Rican-Swedish writer and director who studied at Columbia University. Both are alumni of the famous Berlinale Talents program. Clara Sola was selected in Cannes earlier in 2021 and was screened at Film Fest Gent.
