Seeded by a historical event-the Thammasat University massacre of 1976, in which student protesters were murdered by Thai government forces-this elliptical, bewitching film unfurls like a mutant growth from the compost of the past. As a film director interviews a former activist in preparation for a movie, the self-reflexive scenario refracts until not only the narrative structure but the structure of the image itself breaks down.
