Speaking at the press conference, Goran Paskalijevi, the director of Despite The Frog opened up about his film."We are used to co-producing films & It's nice to exchange experiences between different people. Although we are far, we are of the same family who understands films.
At the same time, Mariella Li Sacchi, Producer of Despite The Fog appreciated the work done by Mr. Paskaljevic. She says, “His approach is not very documentary-like but more on the poetic front. This film addresses a problem that's of growing concern in Italy”.
