A Step Without Feet is a documentary about connection and sharing each others cultures through universal themes like music, family, friends, and art. Within the backdrop of Berlins beautiful, winter landscape, we captured the daily lives of seven extraordinary Syrians exiled from their home country.
Our Gadi Elkon chatted with the filmmaking duo Jeremy Glaholt and Lydia Schamschula.
Kandoo Films latest release is an honest and thoughtful look into seven Syrians living in Berlin. Their circumstances of how they arrived in Germany are labeled by some as refugee stories. Filmmakers Jeremy Glaholt and Lydia Schamschula’s documentary looks to break the negative label associated with refugees by highlighting these seven humans. I had the chance to chat with Lydia and Jeremy about their connection, meeting these unique people, and why it is important for folks to meet these seven.
I first chatted with Lydia Schamschula about her acting leading to directing, working with Jeremy, and about the emotional connection she has to the subjects.
Next I chatted with Jeremy about the logistics of the shoot, the camera utilized and he shared an extraordinary story to close out the interview!
