Director Naoki Hashimoto will attend the Canadian premier of ‘BIRTHRIGHT’ at Fantasia!

The Fantasia Festival is proud to welcome director Naoki Hashimoto to Montreal for the Canadian premiere of his debut feature ‘BIRTHRIGHT’. The first Japanese film to be featured in the Camera Lucida section of the festival, this poignant revenge drama with an impeccable mise-en-scene promises to leave a strong impact on cinephiles.

“Fantasia has always been at the forefront of new Asian cinematic talent,” says Nicolas Archambault, co-director of the Asian section, “and Naoki Hashimoto is definitely one of those. With ‘BIRTHRIGHT’, he has already proven himself to be a filmmaker to look out for, promising to climb up among the ranks of the best. His film is simultaneously corrosive and calm; his visual composition proof that the language Naoki Hashimoto speaks is that of the cinema”.

BIRTHRIGHT will be shown in its Canadian premiere July 19th at 21h40 and July 20th at 15h10 at J.A. de Seve.
