36 (Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit I Thailand 2012 I 68 mins I screening start time: 7.30pm) + director Q&A
On the site of a derelict building, location scout Sai meets art director Oom, and they begin working together. Sai records everything on her digital camera, from images of locations to the people in her life. Two years later, Sai is still in the same job, while Oom has moved on. One day her computer crashes, wiping her hard drive, along with the images that capture an entire year of her life. Among them are those she'd taken of Oom... Consisting of 36 shots, 36 is a delicate contemplation on the nature of memories in the digital age.
We're delighted to welcome Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit (all the way from Thailand!) for a Q&A after the screening. This is a special preview ahead of the film's release in June.
Cinémathèque* screens every 4th Wednesday at The Proud Archivist. Grab a drink to take into the screening and / or join us in the bar afterwards! Cinémathèque* occasionally also hosts special one-off events with guest speakers.
