Mundane History


Location: Redstone Theater

With Anocha Suwichakornpong in person

Dir. Anocha Suwichakornpong. 2009, 82 mins. In Thai with English subtitles. With Arkaney Cherkam, Paramej Noiam. Anocha Suwichakornpong’s first film begins as intimate portrait of a filmmaker paralyzed by an unknown accident and the male nurse who tends to him. It spirals out from there to allow space for multiple digressions, taking on astronomy, Buddhism, and, implicitly, her country’s political realities. Always an envelope pusher, Anocha tested the limits of her country’s censors by controversially featuring full-frontal male nudity, yet this is otherwise a lyrical, meditative work that defies all expectations.

This film is presented as part of a double-feature with By the Time It Gets Dark (which follows at 6:30 p.m.). One admission price for both films.
