DirectorCast

Taiki Sakpisit Manatsnan Phanlerdwongsakul, Sunida Ratanakorn, Chalad Na Songkhla

Thailand, Switzerland / 2021 / Thai / 115 minutes / DCP / Colour

Meditative and nightmarish, Taiki Sakpisit’s feature debut evokes four decades of traumatising history. On the eve of the 2006 military coup that upended daily life in Thailand, a woman shares a final meal with her husband before being smuggled out of the country. Four decades earlier, as student uprisings similarly threaten the nation’s tranquillity, a young girl lies in a coma after nearly drowning. How they are intertwined is what propels Sakpisit’s poetic, hypnotic tale of shadows, dreams, and memories.
