Director Biography - Tom Sajewski

My film, “Paralysis” (2017), has been officially selected for inclusion in film festivals about 60 times and has won 15 awards, including Best Film, Best Cinematography, and Special Mention. For “Shinto: Musashi-Itsukaichi Festival” (2019), I received Best Theme, Best Concept and Fan Award.

I am interested in technological advancements, but at the same time I am fascinated by nature and human stories. I try to tell them using modern film techniques.
