Description

Ann, a film director, prepares to make a movie based on the Thammasat University massacre where student protesters were attacked at the hands of the military in 1976. While interviewing Taew, a former student movement leader who survived the massacre, Ann starts to have doubts about her ability to film the story. Parallel lives and extended dream-like mirages emerge from this inventive narrative, playing with a movie within a movie and with the cinematic intersection of truth and fiction. Anocha Suwichakornpong made her stunning debut in 2009 with Mundane History, which reflects on the connection one’s present has to the past and the future. Seven years in the making, By the Time It Gets Dark is “…a piece of surreal, visual poetry.” — The Hollywood Reporter
