Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s debut feature, an unscripted documentary-fiction hybrid.
The film follows the director and crew as they travel through the Thai countryside asking local residents to contribute to a collective story that is part folklore and part science fiction. The indefinable result is an enigmatic assemblage of avant-garde form and popular iconography highlighting Apichatpong’s career-long exploration of Thai culture and the outer limits of cinematic form.
