See below for additional related events

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.

Restored in 2013 by The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project and the Austrian Film Museum. Restoration works carried out at the Austrian Film Museum, LISTO laboratory in Vienna, Technicolor Ltd in Bangkok, and Cineteca di Bologna/L'Immagine Ritrovata laboratory, in close collaboration with Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
