Själfullt och vackert om Thailands problematiska nutidshistoria och hur den format filmens karaktärer.

En filmregissör intervjuar en aktivist och författare, vars liv kom att förändras radikalt efter massakern vid Thammasat University 1976; alltjämt ett öppet sår i landets historia där upp mot hundra studenter dödades och flera tusen arresterades. Vi möter även en servitris som byter jobb på löpande band och två filmstjärnor vars vägar tar olika riktningar. Med ett utsökt foto och stor ömhet skildrar Anocha Suwichakornpong sina karaktärer, vars liv hänger löst samman och fördjupas allteftersom berättelsen utvecklas.

Regissör: Anocha Suwichakornpong

Anocha Suwichakornpong, born 1976, is a film director and producer from Thailand. Her first feature, ‘Mundane History' won the Tiger Award at Rotterdam. She is currently working on her second feature, ‘By the Time It Gets Dark', which won the Prince Claus Fund from CineMart and received financial support from Ministry of Culture (Thailand), as well as Hubert Bals Fund and Doha Film Institute. She has also produced “In April the Following Year, There Was a Fire” (IFFR 2012), “Concrete Clouds” (IFFR 2014), and “How to Win at Checkers (Every Time) screened at Berlinale 2015.

This is my attempt to deal with the impossibility of making a historical film in the place where there is no history. What begins as a single narrative soon becomes fragmented, and ultimately devours itself. There are no beginning or ending points. Time is both transfixed and moving. The four main characters in the film (played by seven actors) relate to one another spatially, as well as temporally. They drift in and out of reality and dreams, suspended at the point where art intersects life – where cinema is born. It is my intention to create in Dao Khanong the fertile time for remembering. It is also an ode to cinema, the recording machine for memory and history.
