Day two at the Feratum film festival was everything one could hope for at a festivity like this and then some. A couple of films I watched weren't great but José Mojica Marins made my day early in the morning, thanks to his press conference that ended in a mini meet and greet, with some journalists bringing DVDs and taking pictures with Coffin Joe (myself included). In the gallery below I recall this and every other film screening and event I attended during the second day of Feratum 2013.
José Mojica Marins’ Press Conference
Around 10:30 AM, Mojica Marins arrived to a Tlalpujahua museum (Museo Rayón) to meet with the press. Surrounded by Gary Pullin’s artwork, including both the black and white and color version of the Rue Morgue Coffin Joe cover, Mojica Marins said to the film journalists “ask me anything, strange stuff!”
And, indeed, he discussed a rich variety of themes, such as his main influences (including Roman Polanski and Alfred Hitchcock) and even his upcoming project. I’m working on a full article with the top quotes and exclusive photos from this press conference, so stay tuned!
