Image from the film By the Time it Gets Dark.
This Thai drama follows the story of two women, beginning with the testimony of a survivor of the Thammasat massacre of 1976. The film soon spirals into an investigation of the process of filmmaking itself. Director Anocha Suwichakornpong collapses the past into the present as a way to probe the haunted recesses of both national and personal memory. By the Time It Gets Dark is a magical, melancholic ode to the intellectual’s struggle against the forces of history. In Thai with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
