Don’t let Michael Fukushima’s title – producer, animation studio at the National Film Board of Canada – fool you; he does deal in the doc world. Having most recently worked on Tying Your Own Shoes, an animated doc looking at the lives of artists with Down Syndrome, Fukushima took a few minutes to share three things about himself with realscreen.
1. I watch most of my ‘grown-up’ films on planes, since my cinema time is spent with my 12-year-old son and films he/we want(s) to see.
2. I’m a sucker for father-son stories, and if there’s a death, I’ll sob openly.
3. I’ve had a blood test requisition in my bag for three months because I’m incapable of eating healthily for more than four days in a row.
