When Pigs Have Wings
Actress, Myriam Tekaїa
24th TIFF The Audience Award Winner
Q: How do you feel about participating in TIFF?
Myriam Tekaїa (Actress): I am in the clouds. I think it is going to be difficult for me to leave Japan. I want to keep in contact with everybody and I thought that the people here were generous and had good tastes. I feel that they have interests in various kinds of cinema. The public is very open and have seen very many movies. They are very cultured in cinema and world cinema as well. I was very impressed by that. They have the great memory of names and the conversation with them is very interesting. I was really amazed. And to tell you the truth, I find Japan and the people of Japan to be very courageous to do the film festival in such generous ways after the disaster. I think this will be a lesson for the whole world to keep things going and also a great example of generosity and optimism.
Q: Is it your first time to come to Japan?
Myriam Tekaїa: Yes it is my first time. It was a dream for me to come to Japan because it was a far away land. When I was young, people told me all the time that I looked a little bit like Japanese. I grew up always thinking that there was link between me and Japan. When I was small, people told me, “Tekaїa, maybe it’s from Japan.” And to come to Japan in this kind of circumstance is really a dream come true.
We are so happy to have you here.
Thank you so much. You can’t imagine how strong of a memory this will be for us. This is a very strong moment for us.
