Two movies that i worked on will be screened at Busan International film festival this year.
First is Shinya Tsukamoto’s Killing with its Asian premiere who just had its World premiere at the VIFF 2018 and its North American premiere at the TIFF 2018. Killing is the only Japanese Film that is part of the Gala Presentation Section. The Gala presentation is the celebration of the artistic achievements of this year’s most talked-about filmmakers through a showcase of their most recent films.
Then the movie Come on Irene by director Keisuke Yoshida which I also worked on will be screened as part of the A Window on Asian Cinema section.
An interesting story about these movies, -other than I worked on both of them- is that Director Keisuke Yoshida’s first BIFF experience was 20 years ago when he was a lighting staff – like me – working for one of Shinya Tsukamoto’s movie. And now he is back at the BIFF as a director where he will be reunited with Shinya Tsukamoto as both of them being directors of a film presented at the BIFF. : )
Here are the english trailers and schedule at the BIFF 2018 of these movies.
Killing ( Zan,斬、)
Come on Irene ( Itoshi No Irene,愛しのアイリーン )
