A film channeling a director’s family tragedy into a time-skipping story of consequences and regret will finally get its day at home.
Fresh from its premiere at the Venice Film Festival and awards in Poland and Japan, Anatomy of Time will finally come to Thai theaters on Jan. 20.
The 118-minute story unfolds in two timelines. In the 1960s, a clockmaker’s daughter is courted by two men – a rickshaw driver and an army chief. In the present day, the same woman, in her 70s, cares for her dying husband – who is revealed to be a disgraced former military man.
The film is a tangible interpretation of a generation slowly fading. On one level, it expresses a deeply felt story of a woman, while also capturing a nation’s tragic history and exploited people, according to director Jakrawal Nilthamrong.
The 38-year-old filmmaker said he was inspired by his own mother, who cared for his bedridden father. His first feature film, 2015’s Vanishing Point, won a top award at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
Anatomy of Time will screen at House Samyan, SF Cinema, Major Cineplex, Lido Connect and Doc Club & Pub starting Jan. 20.
