Phuttiphong Aroonpheng থাইল্যান্ড, 2018

Aaken's rating of the film Manta Ray

A layered and hypnotic sensory journey for this tale of friendship between a mute Rohingya and a Thai fisherman who rescues him. Aroonpheng juggles with symbols, the strange and the marvellous and an elusive narrative of displacement and swapped identities that leaves doors open to interpretation. But the humanist heart of the film is firmly rooted. Certainly one of the most fascinating films of this year.
