  • 1h 13m


Nobel Prize–winning author Kazuo Ishiguro recently joined TIFF’s Artistic Director and Co-Head, Cameron Bailey, for a live conversation about Ishiguro’s creative writing process for page and screen, as well as his critically acclaimed novel Klara and the Sun. Ishiguro’s connection to cinema runs deep: his bestselling novels The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go have been adapted into acclaimed feature films, and Ishiguro himself wrote the original screenplay for Guy Maddin’s cult hit The Saddest Music in the World and the screenplay for James Ivory’s sublime The White Countess. Don’t miss this in-depth discussion with a master storyteller about his work.

Please note: You can still pick up a signed copy of Klara and the Sun via TIFF Shop. These copies were personally signed by Kazuo Ishiguro — no bookplates!
