Goran Stolevski Talks ‘Of An Age,’ Editing, And Cinematic Passions


Director Goran Stolevski received his share of acclaim for his immersive masterwork You Won’t Be Alone, and he has done it again with the romantic/coming-of-age drama Of An Age. Stolevski talked to Deepest Dream about the inspiration behind the feature, which hits theaters Friday via Focus Features.

Of An Age centers on Kol (Elias Anton), a Serbian born teenager who lives in Australia. His day starts off rough when his close friend Ebony (Hattie Hook) is late for their ballroom dance performance. Enlisting the help of Ebony’s brother Adam (Thom Green), Kol is understandably frustrated of his friend’s irresponsibility (she was left stranded after partying the night before).

Kol and Adam have an electric attraction from the get go, and their banter back and forth regarding cinema and literature increases that sexual tension.

Filmmaker Goran Stolevski, inspired by such films as Wong Kar Wai’s Happy Together and Jean Vigo’s L’Atalante, crafts a movie that aims straight for the heart and soul. A universal story of first love and lust (and the persistence of memory), Of An Age is an unforgettable cinematic experience.

Goran Stolevski interview is also featured on the CinemAddicts podcast:

Stolevski talked about both Happy Together and L’Atalante in the interview, and he also gave a great reason why he took sole editing duties for his feature.

Of An Age hits theaters February 17, and if you love bittersweet love stories that refuse to pull punches, this movie might resonate with you. Let us know if you see Of An Age!!
