Perrine Yarar: Why did you decide to do a Master’s in Film?
Wendy Pillonel: Film is a form of art that many of us are familiar with. Films can encourage reflection and impart knowledge. And that’s what I’d like my films to do. I want to learn as much about the technical aspects of filmmaking as I can, and ZHdK provides the best possible conditions for doing so.
What’s your favourite spot in Zurich?
That depends on what I want to do. If I need to concentrate, I’ll go to the Toni library. I go to concerts at the Exil. And of all the cinemas in town, the Riffraff’s my favourite.
