Michael Fukushima: The Art of Producing Art
Canada Rated G 51:00 English

Reel Asian has always shone the spotlight on a Canadian director or group of directors with our Canadian Spotlight program. For the first time, we focus on an individual whose primary work lies elsewhere. With our spotlight on award-winning producer Michael Fukushima, we look to investigate creative roles and break the stereotype of director as the only ‘auteur’ of a work–the sole proprietor of creative vision. We hope to demystify the producing process through a screening of Fukushima’s work (both his own and his collaborations) and a discussion of the art of producing. In the discussion, Fukushima will be joined by several directors with whom he worked–and will address topics unique to creative producing such as risk-taking, building creative teams and the vagaries of success.
