‘Beyond the Bridge’ Confirmed for World Premiere at Tokyo International Film Festival 2016.
Part of the Asian Three-Fold Mirror project which brings together three talented directors from Japan and other Asian countries to create a series of short films with a common theme, ‘Beyond the Bridge’ is the second film from award-winning Director Sotho Kulikar.
Sotho Kulikar’s Cambodia episode, ‘Beyond The Bridge’, is a love story that transcends time and borders. Her second film following her award-winning directorial debut, #TheLastReel (Spirit of Asia Award at #TIFFJP2014), it portrays a love story that begins in Cambodia against the backdrop of the nation’s civil war and the Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge located in Phnom Penh. The piece stars Masaya Kato, a prolific Japanese actor who is active internationally. Playing opposite Kato is Cambodian dancer-choreographer Chumvan Sodhachivy, who recently appeared in Amon Miyamoto’s theatrical production “The Terrace of the Leper King” in Japan.
