INTERVIEW WITH AGNES THI-MAI (Role: MONIKA)
How did you get to know wtp?
When I was at the Cannes Film Festival back in 2009 to present a short film, everyone was talking about the film ANGELS WITH DIRTY WINGS. Since then I’m a fan of wtp.
Tell us something about your character MONIKA. Are there any parallels to your personal life?
My character is called MONIKA and she is only able to feel lust and sexuality through physical pain. She is only focused on pain, this obsession determines her life. If a man can’t whip her like she wants him to she replaces him. Men are pure objects to her and just meant to bring her personal satisfaction. I find this fact very exciting. The character doesn’t have much to do with me as a private person, privately I’m more an attached and cuddly person trying to avoid pain as much as I can.
