The Film Comment Podcast: Sandi Tan (Shirkers)
“With Shirkers, Sandi Tan . . . revisits the long-lost footage from her unfinished narrative feature shot in Tan’s native Singapore in 1992, also called Shirkers, and in the process reckons with both why the film was never finished and how several relationships were forever changed in its wake,” Eric Hynes wrote in our March/April 2018 issue, about Sandi Tan’s Sundance prize-winning film. For our latest Film Comment Talk at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Tan sat down to talk about her experience making Shirkers, joined by FC contributor Farihah Zaman, also a filmmaker. Shirkers opened October 26 and is available to view on Netflix.
