The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interview With “Evil Does Not Exist” Composer Eiko Ishibashi

Evil Does Not Exist” had its world premiere at the 2023 Venice International Film Festival, where it received positive reviews for its direction and writing from Ryūsuke Hamaguchi, and score by Japanese singer-songwriter and musician Eiko Ishibashi. Following their collaboration on the Oscar-winning film, “Drive My Car,” the two intended to make a 30-minute short film accompanied by a live score. But as the production got lengthier and the shoot went along, Hamaguchi decided to turn it into a feature film with dialogue, which is the film we have today. Ishibashi was kind enough to sit and talk with us about her latest work which can be listened to below. Please be sure to check out the film, which is now playing in limited release in the U.S. from Sideshow/Janus Films. Thank you, and enjoy!
