Relaying comments of various guests from the 24th TIFF. (Part4)
Winds of Asia Middle-East Sugino Kiki Muse of the Asian Indies,
Actress, Producer Sugino Kiki

Q: How do you feel about participating in TIFF which had special feature screenings of your film?
Kiki Sugino: When I was consulted with the featured screening for the first time, I wondered whether it was going to be alright. But as we continued with the screening and when I had a chance to see the faces of the audiences who came to see the films and as we proceeded with the Q&A I truly realized that the art of film is completed only after it is appreciated by the audience.
Although my experience as an actress is still limited, I felt the need to continue devoting myself to my work even more and improve my attitude spiritually as a token of my appreciation for having my films featured at the film festival.
Q: We made the TIFF slogan for this year as “Believe the Power of Film”. Do you have any specific episodes for feeling the power of the film?
Kiki Sugino: I believe that the film has a power to change people’s life, even if it’s only a slight change. There was a huge incident and the aftermath of the disaster still continues. I believe that we should have a global and broader perspective on film making rather than just think about the film production in domestic terms, I strongly feel this way, especially after the earth quake.
