Overview

In The Last Thing Standing, Shin pulls away floors and ceilings in a thoughtful meditation on the concept of home. From the many lives contained within four walls of a house, to the mortar and beams that keep it standing, she is a telling witness to the love, anger, and poignant solitudes that form the spaces we inhabit and make our own.

Ann Shin

Shin is a Toronto writer and filmmaker who has been published in anthologies and magazines across Canada and the United States. Her documentaries have garnered international awards at the New York Festival, the Columbus International Festival, and in the National Film Board Reel Diversity Competition. She is currently working on a novel and is also a producer for the Women’s Television Network. Shin’s family immigrated to Canada from Korea in the 1960s. She grew up on a mushroom farm in Langley, BC. She’s liked the communal life ever since and has stayed in villages throughout Europe and Asia. No matter how far you travel, no matter where you end up, Shin believes all you need are a handful of certain rituals to make a place your home. She currently resides in Toronto in a home that’s been subject to an exhaustive and slow renovation.

Reviews

Shin's precise imagery, her familiar but refreshing descriptions, and her ultimately daring focus on the intimate make The Last Thing Standing a worthy debut, full of promise.Ó (The Antigonish Review)
