In this lyrical meditation on the fragility of life, former lovers Shane and Pitch reunite after years apart, and having experienced a series of personal tragedies. Pich has a terminal illness and finds peace in painstakingly creating exquisite Bai Sri ornaments, delicate flower sculptures used in Thai religious ceremonies. Shane is struggling to come to terms with the death of his daughter, and the subsequent disintegration of his marriage. When the pair reconnect, together they must try to heal the wounds of their past, and rekindling their relationship, Pich and Shane begin to release themselves from the pain that has burdened them for so many years. Touching performances and vivid cinematography characterise director Anucha Boonyawatana’s mesmerising second feature, a hypnotic contemplation of desire and loss.
This screening is followed by an in-person Q&A with the director Anucha Boonyawatana.
