TIFF Talk 2015: Diliana, "Love"

Name: Diliana, Miami

The film: Gaspar Noé's Love (France)

What's it about?

Love doesn't have a plot. It's more the feeling of being in love with all the trials, sexapades and challenges that come with it.

Did you like it?

I think Noé did a beautiful job with it. It reminds you of all your personal experiences, and it was great to see love and sex portrayed in a beautiful manner -- instead of just being a transaction or plot point. I don't think it's pornographic. I've seen porn and this is not what it is. It's religious, transcendent and honest. It's about life. Why should loving and having sex with someone be shameful -- or pornographic for that matter? Why should it be hidden -- especially in a puritanical culture like North America. I think we should get over it.

Next screening:

Thursday, September 17th at 6pm, TIFF Bell Lightbox 1

Diliana is the director of an interactive film festival based in Miami called Filmgate. "All the installations and screenings are immersive and interactive so the audience can get involved."
