Interview with Winning Screenwriter Maurizio Caduto (LIKE A BLOODY MONKEY)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

Maurizio Caduto: To me, Like A Bloody Monkey is about the price of survival. Zehra’s traumatic transformation into a stronger character, who’s finally fit to fight for survival and revenge, begs the question: At which point the price becomes so high it defeats survival’s very purpose?

2. What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Drama. There are some elements of thriller and soft horror. But LABM is a grim, dark drama.

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

The struggle of transgender women in Malaysia is a story that needs to be told and I hope Zehra will help bringing much needed attention and empathy to it.

4. How would you describe this script in two words?

Soul-searching.

5. What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

It’s got to be The Godfather. That movie just won’t age.
