Richard Ma: Action Maker (Co-Presented by Toronto ReelAsian Film Festival) + The Opposite (Short)
Richard Ma: Action Maker (Co-Presented by Toronto ReelAsian Film Festival)

This intriguing film is some sort of odd hybrid between truth/fiction. It’s part documentary and part mockumentary – but it’s never clear where one ends and the other begins. That ambiguity though is the source of its power, and this film is always compelling and interesting. Lead character /real life documentary subject Richard Ma is very unique. He is a social outcast, but also deeply passionate. He’s sort of clueless in a way – but in an endearing way. He tries again and again to succeed – despite really having no reason to believe he can succeed. In the same way Willy Loman from Death of a Salesman expressed all the anguish of trying to live the American capitalist dream, Richard Ma: Action Maker seems to express the pent-up desires of the proletariat nouveau – where the currency is fame and not money. It’s always nice to find a hidden
gem, and this under-the-radar movie really deserves a larger audience.

The Opposite

The Opposite is exactly that. Without giving anything away, remember that things are not always as they appear.
