Previously, Honk Magazine had interacted by way of interviews with – Michael Ingrassia, Serge Leterrier, David Decraene, and now Gaël Zaks, about their personal inspirations, chaos in film-making, and creating characters you can empathize with on the “A STONE IN THE HEART”.

The origins of this film are a series of discussions they had with the director and creator of the film Michael Ingrassia which transit from the front of the camera in a number of hugely popular and highly respected Philosophical tales about the chaotic journey of a little guy from Liège, his sufferings, his struggles, a parade of genres, representing the whole of the society of our time.

When I was a teenager. There was a small movie theatre in my small town. And there I would always go watch films, even just by myself. I loved those moments. That’s when I felt that being an actor is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

2. Tell us a little about yourself, the training acquired, and your age.

I’m 36 years old and I went to ‘The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute’ in New York. It was a real revolution to me, being in NY in such a great city, and a great school while I was coming from a small town in France. It was super impressive.  The training was deep and amazing. Today in my heart it is still ‘My school’. I learned so much there and with great teachers.

Michael Ingrassia (Creator of the film), David Decraene (playing the lead), Serge Leterrier (Screenplay of the film), Pascal D’Ivernesse (Co-Actor), Laurent Caille is General Artistic Director

Also, ‘Piero Di Cuero’ is actively involved. It feels like he’s constantly, during his journey walking and going through such heavy emotions and events that we can all wonder if he’s gonna make it.

Gaël Zaks himself is playing ‘Armand Tale’. “I accompany him in his journey, along with Pascal D’Ivernesse playing ‘Gipsy Ché. We don’t know if we’re real or just Piero’s imagination”.

Gaël Zaks character tries to guide in a more intellectual and conscious journey he has to go through, while ‘Gipsy’ is more represents the influence of the soul. It’s a brilliant script and story.

18. What, in your opinion, is the most important quality in film actors, directors, artistic crews?

 In my opinion, a film crew can be compared to the crew building a magnificent house.

You have all kinds of jobs represented but the most important, what defines them all: They’re all, with their own talent, working in the same direction, with the same passion: to make this house/film as beautiful it can be for them and for the audience!

19. What is your articulated release date of this film production for public view?

BenniHunna- Don’t let the lack of support tear down your confidence. I mean everybody is not going to support you & that’s okay. Just cause they are not supporting me now.

BenniHunna- Maintaining your confidence. Once you lose confidence you lose faith & you start doubting your talent. When you lose faith your audience will too. They can only believe in you as much as you believe in yourself. 

BenniHunna- Be more spontaneous. Everything doesn’t have to be planned out strategically. Sometimes you just gotta get in there & go do it. Don’t think about it. Don’t prejudge it. Just go make it happen. & see what comes from it. I’m not saying do that every time. It wouldn’t hurt to do it sometimes because that spontaneous move might just give you what you been looking for that you couldn’t plan for.

BenniHunna- I say different flows & beat selection. Try different types of music. You don’t want the audience to feel like they’ve heard the same song over & over. You can even keep the same style but just switch it up lil bit so they can’t predict how the record will sound.
