Tsukamoto Shinya

Still: The Phantom of Reguler Size

TSUKAMOTO Shinya (1960, Japan) was given a Super-8 camera at the age of 14. He began acting, studied art at university and then directed commercials for four years. His first feature Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989) and its sequel Tetsuo II: Body Hammer (1992), about the bizarre metamorphosis of a Japanese businessman into a mass of metal, acquired him worldwide status as a cult filmmaker. Tsukamoto acts in almost all his own films and was part of the cast of Martin SCORSESE's Silence (2016) and Takashi MIIKE's Dead or Alive 2: Birds (2000). Hokage (2023) marks the 13th year he has been selected for IFFR.
