The Age of Anxiety
2013 / 14 minutes / experimental film / Thailand
Watch at Kortfilm

The Age of Anxiety meditates on fin de siècle Thailand. The film deconstructs the hallucinatory film footages of the Thai melodrama of the 80’s into thousands of frantic fragments, like the violent stabs of disturbing memories, perpetual nightmares and reinventing histories, that ascend the viewers into the mind-expanding horizons of a fragile nation on the verge of madness.
