Today on the Brett Allan Show we are chatting Toronto Film Fest participant and rising film star Thomas Antony Olajide and his film " Learn to Swim". Such a fascinating conversation and of course a great film. We discuss the film, the subtext of a character, where the jurisdiction stops and starts for an actor when they make a film and what the audience does and does not take away from it, and so much more. Enjoy!
Learn to Swim is a surrealist romantic drama that follows Toronto jazz saxophonist Dezi Williams played by Thomas, as he attempts to escape a recent tragedy. He’s withdrawn from his band and tries to spend his days in solitude as an instrument repair technician, but is haunted by his memories, a mounting pain in his jaw, and an intrusive new neighbor. When Dezi’s band tracks him down, he is no longer able to hold all the pieces together. Soon the line between reality and memory blur, and he is forced to confront the truths of his past.
