Shirkers ★★★★★

“and you were willing to just burn things just so that you could make your own film”

sandi tan is such a confident and complex storyteller, and the character study on her really was the driving force behind this documentary in my eyes. i loved how this showed that tan’s attachment to art is because it’s how she understands her own experiences. and while i am disappointed that the actual shirkers wasn’t finished, i think this is much better. documentaries about women being obsessive over their art are just the absolute best.
