Director Anthony Shim on his #TIFF22 Platform Prize–winning film Riceboy Sleeps

“I truly believe that this film wouldn’t be what it is had we not shot it on film, and I'm not speaking just about the visual aesthetic either… it created a heightened sense of focus and discipline on the day… but it was so much fun because it felt like a live theatre performance.”

Director Anthony Shim (Daughter) discusses the making of his #TIFF22 Platform Prize–winning film, Riceboy Sleeps, including finding inspiration in the limitations of using 16mm film and stepping in front of the camera himself in the film.

The film opens on March 24 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
