Ten Years Thailand
Four directors from Thailand conjure up their country’s future a decade from now in this omnibus film.
Consisting of one short film each by its four directors, Ten Years Thailand speaks to an imagined future—a response to the increasingly turbulent and repressive political environment of the country at present. From the comic and surreal aesthetics of young video artist Chulayarnnon Siriphol to the austere, detached realism of veteran auteur Apichatpong Weerasethakul, each filmmaker’s voice is distinct, yet united by a thirst for change and dissent.
Produced and spearheaded by the Hong Kong team behind the provocative and highly successful Ten Years anthology film from 2015, Ten Years Thailand is one of a series of regional spinoffs (the others featuring Taiwan, Japan and Korea). The film had its world premiere in the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
