Apichatpong and a dream team of filmmakers imagine Thailand 10 years from now.
Ten Years Thailand is a 2018 Thai dystopian anthology by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, best known for his Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (2010), alongside other directors including Wisit Sasnatieng, who is known for his 2000 action-adventure Tears of the Black Tiger, Aditya Assarat and Chulayarnon Siriphol.
The movie is based on the format of the 2015 Hong Kong film Ten Years, which offers a vision of the semi-autonomous territory in the year 2025, with human rights and freedoms gradually diminishing as the mainland Chinese government exerts increasing influence. Split into four segments, the film offers each director’s perspective on a dystopian Thailand.
It was screened at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival back in May and will be showing at Bangkok Screening Room (see full screening times here), SF Cinema theaters and House RCA from Dec 13.
