Anatomy of Time by Jakrawal Nilthamrong will open the Helsinki Cine Aasia which will take place from May 5-8, 2022 in Helsinki, Finland.
In the political fog of Cold War-era Thailand, a rickshaw driver and an army captain vie for the affections of a clockmaker’s daughter. In the present, she is resigned to spending her days looking after the captain, now a vilified, comatose general.
Following the woman across different periods of history, the elegantly structured film also reveals a higher force lurking in the background: one that leaves objects, landscapes and memories with a new lease of life, while also being painfully indifferent towards trauma. As the narrative coolly brings us through focal points and dead ends, Jakrawal NILTHAMRONG pays obeisance to the workings of time while casting a tender gaze upon those weathered by it. (SGIFF 2021)
