An exceptional thriller with a concert climax final heist scene worthy of Hitchcock, THINGS I DO FOR MONEY is the story of twin Japanese-Canadian cello students who happen upon a satchel of cash and consequently become entangled with the mob. After being terrorised and threatened by the thugs, the dexterous twins plot their revenge.

With a score that perfectly punctuates the action, this soundtrack was composed by its lead co-stars, Theodor and Maximilian Aoki, who are both award-winning cellists in reality. Editors Anna Catley and Kat Webber have cut this film with razor-sharp precision. Executive producer Avi Federgreen is a huge champion of lower budget Canadian filmmaking, whose previous productions have frequently been showcased at Whistler.

Award-winning, Emmy-nominated Japanese-Canadian director Warren P. Sonoda (TRAILER PARK BOYS, PUCK HOGS, COOPERS’ CAMERA and many others) returned to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario to film his dream project: a gritty genre-bending crime thriller the likes of which audiences have never seen before. The Aoki brothers give impressive performances for their big-screen debuts. -Whistler Film Festival
