Director Biography - Ricardo Unto

Independent filmmaker Ricardo Unto is a native of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo.

His works always revolve around the experimentation of production equipment, editing tool and topics.

'Disappearing Verses' is his third film project as director/producer.

His stop-motion animation film 'Bangku' (2016, 1 min 17 sec) or 'Chair' in English, recounted a community of ‘chairs’ faced by a giant enemy – a ball. The film was fully shot on a smartphone.

'Bangku' won third place in the 2016 Sabah Screen Fest.

He returned to Sabah Screen Fest in 2018 by submitting 'dekat' (2018, 4 min 16 sec) or 'near' – a non-dialogue psycho-thriller film. The film was also fully shot and edited on a smartphone.

Funded by Projek Dialog, in 2020, he produced 'Disappearing Verses' (2020, 7 min 23 sec) – a documentary on the traditional priestesses and priests of the natives in Sabah.

The film was shot on a compact digital vlogging camera.

'Disappearing Verses' was well-received by the public as it gained more than 30,000 views and more than 1,000 shares within 24 hours of its publication on Facebook.
