Présentation

Born in Tokyo in 1960, Shinya Tsukamoto is considered one of the most radical and innovative independent Japanese filmmakers. A genuine renaissance man, Shinya Tsukamoto has built up a true cinema family around him, made up of collaborators and actors ready to follow him in the exploration of his wildest fantasies, inspired by the cyberpunk universe of William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, along with the films of David Lynch and David Cronenberg. Many directors in the West, including Quentin Tarantino, hail the multiple talents of this brilliant screenwriter, director, actor, cinematographer, cameraman, editor, set designer and producer.
