Ever since I stumbled upon FilmDoo (Doo is Thai for to watch or see), I’ve been discovering more and more beautiful films. Sure, some are short but I’m 100% sure you haven’t seen them. Well, unless you constantly attend film festivals or follow news about upcoming independent films then you probably know and seen most of their selection. But since I am only able to watch on certain weekends, I am happy with FilmDoo’s selections one of which is the 8-minute film “Rebello” (2009).
I’ll be upfront. Shunsuke Daitō, a Japanese actor used to be the apple of my eye. 🙂 So when I heard he was filming “37 Seconds”, I got curious and researched about it. After reading what was available online, I realised I wanted to watch it because of the story and most especially because of the actress. You see Hikari’s debut film features first-time actor Mei Kayama who has cerebral palsy. The film “37 Seconds” gives us a rare, authentic; not to mention, beautiful view into the world of a young woman with cerebral palsy.
