Kirsten Tan at IFFR
A sink in the sea symbolises the different stages of life. Sink, in stylised black-and-white, prompts reflection.
Beautiful, meticulous, realistic drama about an old lady who finds a Burmese refugee girl in her home. Unsentimental to the end. She knows life.
A disillusioned architect rediscovers Pop Aye, the elephant from his childhood, in the streets of Bangkok. Together they set off on a journey to the village where they grew up. Occasionally funny, occasionally moving road movie about two uprooted souls who meet the most colourful figures on their journey home. Winner VPRO Big Screen Award 2017.
