Directed by Ben Rivers, Anocha Suwichakornpong
UK, Thailand / 93 mins / PG13 – Some Sexual References
An experimental exploration of the landscape in Krabi, 2562 sees locals from the pre-historic and recent past interweave with foreigners who resemble the past, present and future. It is a unique drama centered on the filmmakers’ vision of capturing this tourist destination in a manner that spans various dimensions.
Undertones of political systems and order ground the film in its current reality, while scenes of cavemen and other-worldy forces give the film a timeless quality. Such combustion of creativity is the result of a collaboration between British filmmaker Ben Rivers and Thai filmmaker Anocha Suwichakornpong. They have put together their experiences into the film; an amalgamation of local and tourist; dated and modern.
