36

A film by Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit

Thailand 2012 | 68 mins

Drama/Avant-garde Japanese

36 is the number of shots on an analogue roll of film. It’s also the number of shots in this film. Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit's debut feature is both a daring experiment in formalism and a delicate rumination on the nature of memory in a digital age.

Winner: New Currents Award, Busan International Film Festival 2012

Official selection: Tiger Competition, International Film Festival Rotterdam 2013

"Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit's innovative film is an object lesson in what can be achieved without flashy camerawork." 

Mike McCahill  — The Guardian

 

"This striking debut will cast a spell on viewers who click into its languid and quietly simulating rhythms."

Richard Kuipers — Variety
