By the Time It Gets Dark

Dir. Anocha Suwichakornpong. Thailand, 2016. 1h 46m. Thai/subs. Starring Arak Amornsupasiri, Apinya Sakuljaroensuk, Achtara Suwan, Visra Vichit-Vadakan.

An elliptical journey that weaves together multiple stories reflecting on the lingering trauma of the 1977 student massacre in Thailand. The unfolding narrative provides a innovative and mesmerising study on memory, politics and cinema.

'Suwichakornpong confidently defies conventional forms and linearity. She collapses the past into the present as a way to probe the haunted recesses of both national and personal memory.’ Ben Nicholson, Sight and Sound Magazine

'It is an engrossingly strange, confident leap down the conceptual rabbit hole, and a very accomplished piece of film-making.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
