The Island Funeral

Maha Samut Lae Susaan

Pimpaka Towira, Thailand, 2015, 105 min

Pimpaka Towira, Thailand’s foremost female director puts her three characters on a road trip from the politically turmoil Bangkok to the similarly restless and heavily militarized southern province of Pattani. The poetic, documentary-style aesthetics is built around Laila’s search for her missing aunt. Winner of Asian Future Film Award at Tokyo International Film Festival 2015.
