Series – Contemporary World Cinema
Directed by Anocha Suwichakornpong and Ben Rivers | UK/Thailand | 94 mins.
Our final Contemporary World Cinema pick of the season is Krabi, 2562 (2019)- an exciting collaboration from experimental film superstars Ben Rivers and Anocha Suwichakornpong. Celebrated by TIFF Wavelengths last year, this unconventional documentary is an innovative dive into the world of a Thai tourist community, using fiction, interviews, and oral traditions to render a vibrant and trippy experience that begs to be seen on the big screen. The film captures the gorgeous sights of the Thailand coast on super 16mm film as our narrator, a mysterious woman with morphing identities absorbs the local history and traditions with a surreal detachment. Reflecting on themes of time, place, and memory, Krabi, 2562 captures a striking moment in its titular town where the past and the present collide, frequently and uneasily.
