“This film is my love letter to cinema.” — Anocha Suwichakornpong

«This mesmerising second feature from Thai film-maker Anocha Suwichakornpong… is a kaleidoscopic meditation on the shifting relationship between past and present, truth and fiction, movies and memory.» — Mark Kermode, The Observer

“an expansive and imaginative exploration of class, history and spirituality in modern Thailand” — Eve Watling, Little White Lies

We are pleased to be screening one of 2016's best festival films, Anocha Suwichakornpong's By the Time it Gets Dark. Our first screening in June sold out so this is a second chance to catch this remarkable and highly praised film.

Taking the Thammasat student massacre of 1976 as its starting point, By the Time it Gets Dark intricately weaves together the lives of various characters in this beguiling and dizzying second feature by Anocha Suwichakornpong.

The lives of a documentary filmmaker and her subject, a former a student activist, a waitress who constantly drifts from one job to another, an actor and an actress are all loosely connected, hinging on a series of almost invisible threads, while the narrative doesn’t fail to surprise as it unfolds, layer upon layer.

The film intricately weaves together notions of memory, the political and cinematic, offering a bold exploration into film the possibilities of cinema itself.

Anocha Suwichakornpong’s debut feature Mundane History won a Tiger Award at International Film Festival Rotterdam 2009, and she has also just won three Thai national film awards for By the Time it Gets Dark
