An ancient, yet still-common Thai superstition is the basis for this subtle reflection on power relations and sexism. The young Piano gets lumbered with the job of keeping the set dry during the shoot for Anocha Suwichakornpong’s latest film Come Here. Only she seems capable of warding off the rain. Fiction and making-of are joined virtually seamlessly: Thai filmset as an allegory for society.
