By the Time It Gets Dark


Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Anocha Suwichakornpong. 2016, 105 mins. In Thai with English subtitles. With Visra Vichit-Vadakan, Arak Amornsupasiri. In her unpredictable and beguiling second feature, Anocha Suwichakornpong embeds a narrative of contemporary political disillusionment within a larger, metacinematic superstructure brimming with narrative invention. A young filmmaker is writing and directing a movie about the 1976 Thammasat University massacre, a horrific chapter in Thailand’s political history in which the military attacked students protesting the country’s dictatorship. Yet her film grows increasingly internalized as it spirals out from this event, incorporating multiple narratives and digressions.
This film is presented as part of a double-feature with Mundane History (which screens at 5:00 p.m.). One admission price for both films.
