a group of
80 people

from 19 countries

answering one question

interviewed every 10 years

what is important?


I'MPORTANT is a neverending quest to find the answer to a simple straight-up question:
"what is important?".

It features the same group of people, interviewed every 10 years answering it, and tries to document how time altered their stance and worldview.  The "first chapter" of the show aired between 2011 and 2014 and totaled 83 episodes, featuring people from Romania, USA, The Netherlands, Finland, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Ireland, UK, France, Australia, Denmark, Poland,Lithuania, Hungary, Germany, Iceland, India and Sweden. Ranging from 14 to 91 years old.

The show’s second chapter restarted in 2021, featuring the exact same people, filmed ten years away from their previous appearence. The project is currently ongoing.

The question is strenghened by the fact that at the end of the show’s first part, in 2015, all the interviews have been made unavailable from the internet, in an effort to distance both the participants from their younger selfs and their previous answers. The second chapter episodes include the participants’ reaction to the first viewing of their old interview in 10 years. 

Check out the new batch of episodes on the project's YouTube channel and subscribe if you find it worthwhile.
