I hope peace for the world

Celeste Holsheimer the 12-year-old actress of “The day my father became a Bush” directed by Nicole van Kilsdonk from (the Netherlands) has taken part in the 30th ICFF as a jury member.

Celeste was in an interview with IMNA English Desk:

How did you feel as soon as you watched the film with the audience?

Actually I really liked the film, in the begining it was a little bit weird but I knew how the story was, so I really liked everything.

What kind of message do you think the film offers the children throughout the world?

I think it’s a message for people that know how it is to be a refugee.

Do you believe that films are the best way to connect children worldwide?

I am not sure it is the best solution but it can help a lot.

 Does it have any impact on the world peace?

Yeah sure, because a lot of children do not know how it is to be a refugee so when you watch the film you will know more about who they are.

Do you think that parents are also addressed in the films in terms of how they behave children?

Yes, I think so. Actually we really hope it happens.  

How different do you see this festival with the others around the world?

I have been to Belgium, Holland, and a lot of film festivals.

The people are really nice here in Iran. I was not in the jury in other festivals but I am in the heart of this different experience in Iran.

And also they were no very interviews in other countries but I liked it could occur, but there are so many interviews here for television, radio etc.

How was judging in general?

I really like it. I also learned a lot about it.  

Do you have any messages for teenagers your age?

I just hope universal peace, and that is all.
