Lost At E Minor Interviews Angelo J. Guglielmo, Director of The Monolith #ArtTuesday
The Monolith is visceral documentary and we’re so glad to hear more about it’s director from Lost At E Minor:
For filmmaker Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr, stories about people overcoming powerful challenges and seeking fulfilment lie at the heart of the human experience.
These two themes worked their way into New York City based artist Gwyneth Leech’s life when she found out that a skyscraper would obstruct her source of creative inspiration. Monolith is a visually astounding film that tells her a story on many levels.
We caught up with Angelo and talked about his process for making it.
This is a beautifully made documentary. How did it all come about?
“Thank you! My next door neighbour in my Manhattan apartment happens to be the artist. She came over for coffee and when she was describing the building, the loss of her view and the way she was trying to navigate this maze of obstacles, I really started to see a film about it.”
