Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This hypnotic, enigmatic film by Phuttiphong Aroonpheng contains not just hints of famed cineaste Apichatpong Weerasethakul's work, but also subtle commentary on the plight of the stateless Rohingya people seeking refuge in the director's Thai homeland. Nicholas Godfrey examines the depictions of doubling, displacement and common humanity in this impressive feature debut.
