From one of Thailand’s top up-and-coming filmmakers.
Hope Frozen: A Quest To Live Twice, a documentary we found so stirring we named it our Film of The Year last year, has now reached Netflix.
Directed by Thai-American journalist and filmmaker Pailin Wedel, and available on Netflix Thailand from Sep 15 onwards, the award-winning, feature-length documentary follows the Naovaratpong family. They made international news when they had their two-year-old daughter, “Einz,” who had died from brain cancer, cyro-preserved in the hopes of bringing her back to life in the future.
The girl’s father, a laser scientist, hopes to give Einz the radical opportunity of a rebirth inside a regenerated body. He instills this dream inside his 15-year-old son, who wants to be a part of reviving his little sister.
Having won awards at film festivals in Canada, South America and Asia, Hope Frozen is more than just a perspective on grief, as the themes of love, karma, science and technology will leave you to question life’s difficult twists of fate.
