Filmmaker Sandi Tan joins Chronicle senior digital arts editor Mariecar Mendoza to talk about "Shirkers," a Netflix documentary about a film that was stolen from Tan when she was a teen. Tan was 19 years old when she made the movie in Singapore. Her professor and mentor figure stole the footage and disappeared. "Shirkers" tries to solve that mystery, and make sense of a senseless act.
Produced by Peter Hartlaub. Music is Mozart's Symphony 40 in G Minor by Blue Dot Sessions.
