The Koalition spoke to writer/director Ken Mok about his inspiration to transition from producing movies to creating movies, the impact of social media, finding your authenticity and more.
“There was a couple of inspirations for this script. I’m fascinated with Peter Sellers, he was a brilliant mimic, he could play any character on the planet and he lost himself completely in those roles. People who knew him in real life would say when he wasn’t playing a new role, he didn’t know who he was. I found that really fascinating, it made me think, ‘how could a person who’s so brilliant as an actor have such a weak sense of self identity?’ because they all said he was like a cipher, just like literally nothing, a blank and the only time he came alive was when he played a role.”
