Lara Heller in Interview

MORALMODA MAGAZINE

Lara Heller's first movie The Cut, won the Vittorio Veneto Award at the Film Festival in Venice. A story about a father searching for his twin daughters-played by Lara Heller. The film is endorsed by Martin Scorsese, "The Cut is a genuine, hand-made epic, of the type that people just don't make anymore." 

Lara's latest movie TROY is set in advanterous locations, she explains: "Thailand is paradise to film in! We were shooting at nighttime deep in the jungles. It was surreal with the sounds of frogs in the background, birds and thick trees all around.   On our first day of filming thousands of dragon flies flew into our shot. That was  magical moment and I took it as a good sign.      I love nature, I grew up in the forrest’s of Switzerland and Germany. Location shoots surrounded by animals and trees are my favo-urite. The university we filmed in was Thailand’s first international university, it is where we filmed Troyan war scenes. Boat scenes were a real challenge. The heat is very powerful and we worked 12 hour days. The insects were gigantic compared to Europe!

Lara Heller in inter-view on the red carpet in Hollywood for the screening of her latest film Troy-The Odysse, by Tekin Girgin. Keep an eye out for Troy which is opening in 2018.


Lara Heller in Interview vvvvvvvvvv vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

We shot the movie in 9 days. This is very ambitious;usually shoots last a month. My favo-urite location were limestone caves underground. The dark winding caves had the size of a baseball stadium. It felt like a fairyland of stalactites, stalagmites and stone pillars. The movie has some fantastic locations and we saw hidden jewels in Thailand off the beaten path.        The fencing and fight sequences were my favourite as action sequ-ences teach me so much in new skill sets. You persued acting early and you trained actinge se early abroad? How was this experience and your growing up? Lara: "We moved around a lot when I grew up. My family lived in England, Luxembourg Germany and Switzer-land. At home we spoke English and Farsi, outside the home French and German. I enjoy communicating in multiple languages.

MORALMODA MAGAZINE

Differences in cultures pulled me into acting and I seek to play different nationalities. It’s a blast to live so many other lives for each film.     There’s something exciting about experiencing glimpses into other time zones when we recreate stories of the past.      I trained in Theatre school in Belgium at 15, attended Arts Ed drama school and I continue to train in LA. It’s like going to the gym-it helps so much to work those emo-tional muscles on a regular basis.

My Persian grandpa used to say, learning and love have similar in that there’s no limits to them My Persian grandpa used to say learning and love are similar inthat there’s no limits to them. I live between London and as of recently LA too. I’m very open as to where I live and film and would love to work in Turkey.       I’ve been there for many family holidays over the years and I adore Istanbul. When I'm not filming, I continue training in acting class and

Director Tekin Girgin at the Hollywood premier of his latest film Troy-The Odyssey,

I try to stay as fit as possible. I spend time with my family, who I miss when I'm abroad.          Especially as my grandma is 92 now. I have a small dog, German spitz, and I will go paddle boarding with him in the sea in Brighton if there’s time. A good homemade meal surrounded by people I love is the perfect day.


You worked with director Fatih in an award-winning film, how was this experience and does your internationl bacground help you on the movie set? Lara: "Speaking different languages has helped with work. It means that if another actor prefers to speak in say Farsi, French or German we can talk in their foreign tongue.        Humour and expression is also so interconnected with a specific country and speaking other languages helps building characters rooted in that world. I’d love to learn Turkish for a film.  Yes, I worked with Fatih Akin, I was very lucky to be a part of The Cut. It was my first film and I’m blessed to have such a kind and talented director on my first set. The script was blew me away. Our writer, Mardik Martin, wrote Mean Streets and Raging Bull. Two films I love! And Fatih’s films all have such great character arcs. I was ecstatic to be part of the team. I’ve always felt connected to Turkey. We would go on holiday to Ankara, Bodrum and Marmaris growing up. Everyone’s so friendly and kind. It feels like home. Maybe that’s why I got on so well with our director, Tekin Girgin, when we shot Troy The Odyssey. The film is a fictitious story inspired by Greek mythology. The challenge of a tight shoot schedule and the action sequences excites me. It was tough in a good way and helped me grow."

Could you share with readers how you spend December holidays? Lara: "I’ll be in Denver this Thanksgiving and back in London for Christmas. The German side of my family decorate the house with 1950s decorations. We get a big tree and feast on too much yummy food." Finally, could you please say why we should see Troy? If you like action and adventure tales then check out Troy. The locations are beautiful and it’s a fun film. Such a tight shooting schedule is rare and it may be interesting for film makers to see what we did in a tight deadline. Thank you so much Lara!

You live and film across the Globe , which countries would you like to visit soon again privately and professionally?

Lara: "I’ve been fortunate enough to film on location mainly. Canada was one of the most beautiful locations countries I’ve filmed in. We shot in the Badlands in an old cowboy town.   I hope to film in as many places as possible. Turkey would be amazing and I'm excited to film more in the U.S. and Europe too.       There are so many beautiful locations, it’s hard to pick.The more I learn the wider my imagi-nation expands. It’s exciting!      I studied law for my undergra-duate degree because I was keen to explore both artistic and academic avenues. The more experiences the better-as it all helps to build characters."

Reza Style | Ultimate Men's Lifestyle Guide in Interview

To achieve my main idea I always seek for the most unique content

REZA, YOU MASTER HIGH-END LIFESTYLE AND SHARE EXCLUSIVE LUXURY EXPERIENCES, ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT DRIVES YOU? REZA: "I WAS ALWAYS INTO FASHION, LIFESTYLE AND LUXURY. AT ONE MOMENT I HAD THE FEELING THAT I REALLY WANTED TO SHARE MY VISION OF THE ULTIMATE LIFESTYLE WORL-DWIDE. NEXT TO THAT I STRIVE TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE REACH THEIR ULTIMATE LIFESTYLE, THROUGH MY BLOG.  THE DRIVE TO FULFIL AND MAKE  UNIQUE CONTENT WITH HIGH-END FASHION AND LIFESTYLE PRODUCTS DRIVES ME DAY IN DAY OUT. MY MAIN IDEA IS THAT EVERYONE HOLDS QUALITIES, BUT HOW YOU REFLECT THESE TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD IS THE THING THAT MAKES IT. I SEE IT AS A COMPANY. YOU ARE YOUR OWN COMPANY, AND HOW YOU REFLECT YOUR BUSINESS TO OTHERS IN THE WORLD WILL EITHER SHRINK OR THRIVE YOUR BUSINESS.  THAT IS WHY MY AIM IS TO SHARE EVERYTHING TO ACHIEVE A HIGH QUALITY LIFESTYLE, SO EVERYONE CAN SHARE THERE BEST QUALITIES.  TO ACHIEVE MY MAIN IDEA I ALWAYS SEEK FOR THE MOST UNIQUE CONTENT. I WANT TO BE KNOWN AS A BLOGGER SPECIALIZING IN EXCLUSIVE CONTENT . 

HAMID REZA IS A LUXURY EXPERT BASED IN AMSTERDAM AND WORKING WORLDWIDE WITH LATEST PROJECTS IN THE LUXURY 


MORALMODA

Your own identity will make you unique

THAT IS THE WAY I WANT TO EVOLVE MY BUSINESS AND MYSELF. WHEN YOU HAVE A WEBSITE, YOU ACTUALLY HAVE A VOICE. SO YOU CAN SHARE ALL WHAT YOU LIKE OR DISLIKE. AND THAT CAN HELP YOU TO CHANGE THE STATUS-QUO. ASIDE THAT, I LOVE TO INSPIRE OTHERS AND MYSELF, I AM CREATIVE MINDED. WITH MY BLOG I CHOOSE MY OWN WAY OF  PUBLISHING, CREATING AND PROMPTING CONTENT.

INTERCONTINENTAL PROJECTS SEEM TO BE ANOTHER PRIORITY?  REZA: "TO SEEK AND WORK WITH EXCLUSIVE BRANDS AND COMPANIES REQUIRES  TO BE INTERNATIONAL-AS ONLY FEW DOMESTIC COMPANIES HAVE THE ULTIMATE EXCLUSIVE VISION.  FOR ME GOING INTERNATI-ONAL MEANS THAT I CAN REACH MORE COMPANIES, BRANDS, AND A LARGER AUDIENCE. BESIDES THAT, HAVING AN OPEN VIEW THAT EXPANDS   TO OTHER COUNTRIES GIVES SO MUCH KNOWLEDGE THAT I OTHERWISE WOULD NOT HAVE HAD IF I ONLY FOCUSED ON DOMESTIC PRODUCTS.


Reza-Style.com

NEXT TRIP IS THIS DEC., TO QATAR. IT IS AMAZING TO EXPE-RIENCE A COUNTRY IN WINTER WITH SUCH WONDERFUL WEATHER. THE ONLY THING I CAN SHARE, IS THE FACT THAT I WILL DO SOME AMAZING SHOOTS AND VISIT THE MOST EXCLUSIVE HOTEL THERE. STAY TUNED, EVERYTHING WILL BE LIVE ON WWW.REZA-STYLE.COM AND MY INSTAGRAM! AS I STATED, WORKING ABROAD WITH DIFFERENT COMPANIES AND BRANDS HAS EXPANDED MY PERSPECTIVE MASSIVELY. EACH AND EVERY COUNTRY HAS THEIR OWN STRENGTH AND QUALITIES.   

You have to be flexible and open to other views, but staying with your own true identity is the key THIS IS ALSO THE CHALLENGING PART, YOU HAVE TO BE CLEAR HOW THE RESULT OF YOUR PRO-JECTS WILL BE SINCE EACH COUN-TRY HAS IT'S OWN WAY OF INT-ERPRETING THINGS. CULTURE OF EACH COUNTRY DIFFERS AND THEREFORE EXPECTATION TO THE END RESULT DIFFERS IN EACH COUNTRY. CHALLENGES ARE THE THING THAT MAKES THIS FUN, IT FORCES ME TO TAKE ON A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. THEREFORE I SEE IT AS A FUN CHALLENGE, WHICH MAKES WORKING INTERNATIONALLY AMAZING. TO CONCLUDE - HOW DO YOU VIEW LUXURY TRENDS AND DEMANDS IN EUROPE COMPARED TO E.G. ASIA?

REZA:"EUROPE IS A CONTINENT ON ITSELF, WHILE OTHER REGI-ONS E.G. ASIA HAVE A DIFFERENT TAKE ON LUXURY, FASHION AND TRAVEL. I PERSONALLY FEEL THAT EUROPEAN TRENDS ARE BECOMING GLOBAL. THEY ARE OUTSPOKEN, BUT NEVER AS OUTSPOKEN AS ASIAN.    I FEEL THAT ASIA TAKES IT A LEVEL HIGHER, AND REALLY TRIES TO CREATE THE NEXT ULTIMATE THING; SUCH AS BURJ KHALIFA IN DUBAI. I LIKE THAT IN ASIA THEY DON'T THINK IN BURDENS, BUT ARE FOCUSED TO CREATE THE ULTIMATE THING. THIS CAN BE IN ALL FIELDS, LUXURY, FASHION, TRAVEL, ETCETERA."


Reza Style | Ultimate Men's Lifestyle Guide in Interview

Dare to stand out from the crowd


YOU WORK WITH MEGA BRANDS FROM ADIDAS TO LEVIS. HOW DO YOU RETAIN YOUR OWN STYLE? REZA:"WHEN IT COMES TO INTERNATI-ONAL PROJECTS THERE ARE MANY KEY EXPERIENCES I WANT TO POINT OUT; THE MOST IMPORTANT IS TO KEEP YOUR OWN IDENTITY. AS MENTIONED, EACH COUNTRY HAS A DIFFERENT TAKE ON THE OUTCOME OF A PROJECT. IT'S OKAY AND THAT CAN BE ACCEP-TED, BUT RETAINING MY OWN IDENTI-TY IN THE WHOLE STORY IS IMPORT-ANT. IN THE END, PROJECT WILL BE LAUNCHED WITH MY NAME ON IT, AND THIS MEANS THAT MY AUDIENCE EXPECTS MY STYLE & APPROACH TOO. THE LATTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON I HAVE LEARNED TROUGH MY BRAND COLLABORATIONS AND TRAVEL EXPERIENCES, AND THAT IS WHAT I WANT TO SHARE WITH PEOPLE TOO. OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO BE FLEXIBLE AND OPEN FOR OTHER VIEWS, BUT  STAYING WITH YOUR OWN TRUE IDENTITY IS THE KEY."  WHAT IS YOU BASE NOW, AND WHAT CAN YOU SHARE FROM YOUR PRIVATE LIFE TO THE MAGAZINE READERS? REZA: "I AM BASED IN AMSTERDAM IN HOLLAND. AS FAR AS I CAN CALL IT MY HOME, BECAUSE MOST OF THE YEAR I AM ABROAD. BESIDES THAT I HAVE A PASSION FOR SPORTS, I LOVE TO PLAY FOOTBALL AND I CANNOT GO TROUGH A WEEK WITHOUT HITTING THE GYM.   YEARS AGO I FINISHED MY INTERNATI-ONAL BUSINESS STUDIES, BUT IN THE END I DID NOT FEEL THAT THIS WAS THE RIGHT PATH FOR ME. THEN I STARTED TO REALLY FOLLOW MY HEART, TROUGH BLOGGING WHICH IS NOW MY COMPANY. " WORKING  ACROSS THE GLOBE , WHICH COUNTRIES WOULD YOU LIKE TO VISIT SOON AGAIN ?

MORALMODA MAGAZINE

REZA: "EVERY COUNTRY IS BEAUTIFUL IN ITS OWN WAY AS LONG AS IT'S SAFE, I LOVE TO VISIT EVERY COUNTRY. I ONLY DO PROJECTS INTERNATIONAL-LY WHEN THEY MAKE A LINK WITH MY SOUL, OTHERWISE I WON’T DO IT.  THE COUNTRIES I LIKE TO VISIT PRIVATELY OR FOR WORK DO NOT DIFFER. AS LONG AS IT INSPIRES ME AND GIVES ME ENTHUSIASM IT IS SOMETHING I WILL FOLLOW. CHOOSING THIS STRATEGY OF BUSINESS MEANS THAT I AM TRULY SHARING MY PASSION AND LIFE WITH MY AUDIENCE. IT IS SOMETHING I DO WITH MY WHOLE HEART AND FEELING. BUT TO NAME YOU ONE COUNTRY THAT IS ON TOP OF MY WISH LIST IT IS JORDAN!

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE THAT WE DONT MISS OUT, NEXT TRENDS IN FASHION, TRAVEL…? "WELL I DO NOT THINK THIS WILL BE A POPULAR ANSWER, BUT IT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO BE YOURSELF. I ADVISE EVERYONE TO FOLLOW THEIR OWN FLOW AND TO CREATE THEIR OWN LIFESTYLE AND PATH WHICH THEY FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH. DARE TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD. HAVING YOUR OWN IDENTITY WILL MAKE YOU UNIQUE, DESPITE THE TREND THAT ARE COMING UP. BE COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT.

Besides Arab fashion Week, that represents one of the most important exhibition of the fashion system all over the world, we share 14edition of Dubai Motor Week and Watch Week's selected refined collection.

why READY-COUTURE? According to Fortune Magazine, the Muslim market spends into fashion is set to balloon up to $484 billion by 2019. In today’s world, the same 10k Euro dress is being sold in 100 plus point of sales around the word. However, the luxury client is looking for more privacy and exclusivity at that price point. In 2017, he or she also looks for more social responsibility and care for ecology. Accordingly, Ready-Couture is the answer to all these concerns by diminishing ‘à-la-chaine production’ and re-establishing a more privileged designer/ client relationship that has been lost with Ready-to-Wear. It is also the economic model that fits the Middle Eastern and Asian markets, where designers create custom garments for their clients, as opposed to mass producing.

“This initiative is an expression of our profound and philanthropic commitment to improve the standards of living of those less fortunate than us”, commented Ramzi Nakad, Fashion Forward Dubai co-founder “With this donation to Dubai Cares, we are hoping to help 15,000 underprivileged children and young adults in Egypt, 50% of which are girls, break the cycle of poverty by providing them with access to safe and conducive learning environment”, he added.

On the back of their participation in Fashion Forward 2017, Baume & Mercier announced the auctioning of special creations, done in collaboration with three of the region’s most well-known designers, Hussein Bazaza, Zayan Ghandour and Rula Galayini. Auction proceeds will be donated to Dubai Cares, the UAE based global philanthropic organization working towards providing children and young people in developing countries with access to quality education. His Excellency, Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Cares said: “Supporting girls’ education is one of the single best investments we can make to help nations overcome the cycle of poverty. With such valuable support from Baume & Mercier, we believe that the private sector can play a key role in this equation and this auction is a great example on how watch brands can help us in empowering children, notably girls, through education.” Dubai Cares’ 3-year program in Egypt aims to cultivate girls’ leadership skills through extracurricular activities and sports, and enabling them to put these skills into practice through participating in Student Unions.   Despite near-universal enrollment in primary education in Egypt, a recent study conducted by the Population Council, found that around 26% of girls surveyed in the country’s frontier governorates, and 23% of those surveyed in rural parts of Upper Egypt, had never attended school, as opposed to 10% and 7% of boys surveyed in these respective area. Egyptian primary schools also have, on average, around 43

ONE&ONLY LE SAINT GÉRAN UNVEILS NEW CULINARY EXPERIENCES

The new Le Carré Lounge sits above La Terrasse and offers wide terraces overlooking the deep blue ocean and expansive skies and is open from 7am until 11pm. The bright and contemporary interior with locally sourced art creates the perfect place for guests to relax, read a book, enjoy a board game or play cards after dinner whilst relishing the resort’s happenings from above. A place to speak to the resort’s Head Concierge, Burty Armance who has been part of the Team for 24 years and will call Le Carré his new home, and will inspire guests with the new and exciting experiences the resort has to offer. One&Only Le Saint Géran has always offered a sense of exclusive seclusion on its own private peninsula with a beachfront and calm lagoon unlike any other resort on the island. A further new dining experience will take full advantage of that tranquil setting as One&Only introduces La Pointe beach restaurant at Palm Grove, at the very tip of the peninsula where guests can enjoy warm waters of the ocean or the new sparkling Palm Grove Pool, the perfect place for families to gather every day. La Pointe restaurant will be open daily from 11am until sunset, and will reflect the smooth Mauritian atmosphere, with its thatched roof pavilions, offering idyllic beach front dining. Guests can dig their feet in the silver white sands while savouring freshly grilled seafood and the catch of the day or stare to stunning sunsets enjoying their favourite signature cocktail. Chefs will bring the taste of Mauritius to their work potentially grilling on firewood or coconut to infuse intense new flavours into their dishes. One&Only Le Saint Géran will begin welcoming guests back on 1 December 2017. For reservations or for more information on the rebirth, please visit oneandonlylesaintgeran.com
