Sandi Tan’s celebrated documentary Shirkers is a visually compelling but narratively frustrating story about a lost film, a creepy director, and a group of young Singaporean women bored with the confines of that country’s conservative culture. (It’s streaming on Netflix.) Tan’s next film is an adaptation of Elif Batuman’s epistolary novel The Idiot, and in a recent interview she called it “Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo told from a female point of view,” but also the “teenage version” of Phantom Thread. It could be interesting? Tan visits RISD for a film lecture at the Chace Center’s Metcalf Auditorium, the one off the RISD Museum’s North Main Street lobby.
