Realive Director Mateo Gil on Inspiration & Intellectualism [Interview]

Writer/director Mateo Gil has never shied away from big ideas. Be it as a writer or a writer/director, he tackles life's questions with insight and an understanding that engages audiences without talking down to them.

His latest, a cryogenic drama called Realive (review), tackles the questions that arise when one lives beyond our natural lifespan. That's the case of Marc Jarvis (Tom Hughes), who has himself frozen until medical technology can cure his life-threatening illness.

The movie imagines, rather vividly, the hardship of waking up from years of frozen sleep but beyond that, touches on some of the bigger ideas Gil is well known for: how does ones psyche hand [Continued ...]

Why One Director Can't Leave Cryonics Behind

Director Mateo Gil can't leave behind the idea of cryonics.

It's not that he's particularly enamored with the idea of freezing his body in hopes of it being revived in the future (he himself would not do that), but rather that as a storytelling concept, he finds it to be the best way to explore the idea of life after death.

His new film Realive, in theaters Friday in the U.S. and on VOD and Digital HD Oct. 3, centers on Marc Jarvis (Tom Hughes), who in 2015 is diagnosed with cancer and decides to end his life and freeze...

Review: Realive, Where Exact Science Is Not An Exact Science

When screenwriters turn towards directing their own features, the case is often that they can make their talkiest screenplay into a film. This is not necessary a bad thing at all, especially considering the case of Mateo Gil's new science fiction tale, Realive (aka Proyecto Lazaro). Here is a film that asks a lot of astute science fiction questions around death and resurrection as our twenty-first century medical science advances towards growing organs, rejuvenating the body with stem cells, and cryogenically preserving the dead or the dying in the hopes that they may be attended to in the future. The corporation at the heart of the film's Lazarus Project has a witty tagline that demonstrates some of the nuanced qualities of the screenplay, "Immortality is only a question...

Interview: Writer/Director Mateo Gil on the Inspirations Behind His Futuristic Sci-Fi Drama Realive

  • DailyDead
Arriving in limited theaters this Friday (and hitting VOD/Digital on October 3rd) is writer/director Mateo Gil’s intriguing sci-fi drama, Realive, which boldly confronts mortality and medical morality after its protagonist Marc (Tom Hughes) is diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, and instead of accepting his impending death, chooses to be cryogenically frozen in hopes of being brought back sometime in the future. Marc gets his wish, which seems like the perfect situation, but as complications arise, he begins to realize that his new immortality isn’t necessarily worth it.

Daily Dead recently caught up with Gil to discuss the inspirations behind Realive, the challenges he faced while making his ambitious futuristic sci-fi project, what he saw in Hughes, and more.

Congrats on the film, Mateo. I’d love to hear what inspired your story, because we've seen movies that have explored the idea of death and the desire for immortality,

Realive Interview: Mateo Gil on His Latest Science Fiction Effort

Mateo Gil made a name for himself firstly as the writer of Alejandro Amenábar - he co-wrote such films as Thesis, Open Your Eyes (later remade by Cameron Crowe as Vanilla Sky) and The Sea Inside - but he has been directing his own feature length films for quite a while now. His latest effort, Realive (aka Proyecto Lázaro), is in the science fiction genre and follows the story of a young man named Marc (played by Tom Hughes), who makes a very tough and unique decision once he learns that he has terminal cancer: to kill himself before dying due to the disease, and then freeze his body hoping that he can be resuscitated in the future (a process known as cryonics). Marc’s plan...

Realive – Review

Realive will be in Theaters on September 29th and on VOD and Digital HD on October 3rd

Review by Mark Longden

I expected not to like this. First up – it’s a SyFy movie, the channel that brought us “2 Lava 2 Lantula”, “Bermuda Tentacles” and “Space Twister”, among many many others. Second up – it prominently features a large group of young beautiful people partying and having the sort of perfect lives that adverts are made of. But then it ended up being an extremely profound movie about love, bad timing, loss, what you’d do when you knew exactly how long you had left, and the future. Flipping from a birth in 1982 to a “death” in 2015, moving between moments in a man’s life then showing his “rebirth” in 2084, it’s superbly edited and deeply moving.

Marc Jarvis (Tom Hughes) is an artist, sort of, in a relationship, sort of, with the extraordinary,

'Mustang' casting director wins award in Locarno
Turkish casting director one of 16 nominated for prize.

Turkish casting director Harika Uygur [pictured] has won the Locarno Film Festival’s European Casting award for her work on Cannes 2015 hit Mustang.

The Oscar-nominated drama charts the coming-of-age of five carefree girls whose conservative guardians confine them while forced marriages are arranged.

Uygur was one of 16 European casting directors nominated for the award, which was decided on by the 83 members of the International Casting Directors Network (Icdn), which represents casting directors in 24 countries.

“This casting director created an organic family that was totally believable; the match of characters and actresses was perfect,” the Icdn told Screen in a statement.

The inexperienced young actresses in lauded drama Mustang - Elit Iscan, Gunes Nezihe Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doguslu, Ilayda Akdogan, and Tugba Sunguroglu - were widely praised for their performances.

Uygur’s recent credits include The Ottoman Lieutenant and Lady Winsley. She is also a member of the Academy of Motion

Turkish Casting Director Harika Uygur Wins Locarno’s European Casting Award

Turkish Casting Director Harika Uygur Wins Locarno’s European Casting Award
Locarno, Switzerland — Turkish casting director Harika Uygur is the winner of the Locarno Film Festival’s European Casting Award for her work on the ensemble cast of “Mustang,” director Deniz Gamze Erguven’s foreign-language Oscar-nominated debut about five sisters contending with conservative mores in contemporary rural Turkey.

Chemistry between the mostly previously unknown talented young actresses — Elit Iscan, Gunes Nezihe Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doguslu, Ilayda Akdogan, and Tugba Sunguroglu, who also look alike – is considered crucial to making “Mustang” a breakout hit.

Uygur (pictured), who is the founder of an acting studio in Istanbul this year, became a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She recently finished casting the Iraqui-Kurdish director’s “Lady Winsley,” a French, Turkish, Belgian co-production.

Uygur was voted the winner among 16 nominated casting directors by the 83 members of the International Casting Directors Network (Icdn), which represents casting directors in 24 countries.
