BUOYANCY Film Premiere + Panel Discussion (Friday, December 13)

14-year-old Chakra from Cambodia secretly leaves home in search of a better life. After a gruelling journey across the border, he finally arrives in Thailand, where he and other young men are sold to a broker and enslaved on a fishing trawler. As months go by, trapped at sea and forced to work with little to no rest, the workers begin to lose any hope, and then any humanity.
The film draws on real life accounts of victims of modern slavery, in particular survivors who have been trapped on boats in the South China Sea – a common practice within the multi-billion-dollar fishing industry in Thailand that supplies seafood to the rest of the world. Despite its crucial significance to the ongoing debate, the film has not been screened in Thailand before

Gloomy Memoir the Painting Exhibition by Wanlop Hansunthai (Saturday, December 14 - Friday, February 14)

Everything in this world has its origin. Stories created from memories from the past also have consequential effects on the living condition of today’s society, whether it is the system of perception, material essence, or even the thinking processes of both humans and non-human things including the surroundings and various objects which are linked to the society.

This exhibition is therefore only a tool for recording memories from daily events or stories at a certain time which we might forget or overlook. Still, the way we bring those memories onto the canvas through the simplicity with hidden significance is like an invitation for the audience to the procedure of finding the answer of the whole story.

Location : York By Dumbo  5  INN-Office Building

It is the heartfelt biopic of a famed Muay Thai transsexual kickboxer ‘Nong Toom’ Parinya Charoenphol, who won international fame for his lethal kicks on stage, but always felt a gender crisis. He studied the ancient arts and crafts of Thai kick-boxing, won numerous title-fights, and amassed money, to help his impoverished family, and also to sort himself out of his gender-crisis. The film is tough and realistic when portraying the kickboxing scenes, but is sensitive and beautifully layered in dealing with Nong Toom's transitions to try to match his body with his soul.
