All is far from what it initially seems in this hand-processed Super-8 film, shot in the private garden of a high-ranking Thai army officer.
This tranquil film by artist Prapat Jiwarangsan reflects on the necessary search for belonging in the changed face of Thailand since the 2014 coup d’etat.
Confusion Is Next
Thai noise musician Thom AJ Madson confines himself in a room for an experiment to give a plumeria tree a sound. He alternates between creating sound experiments and the meditative rhythms of his daily spiritual routine.
A group of teenagers conducts a cremation ceremony for a man who is entering the afterlife while still being sought by the military for deserting.
The film consists of four new renditions of traditional Thai lullaby tunes in Chehe dialect, focusing on the current religious and cultural disharmony.
