Synopsis

Ashes contemplates love, pleasure, and the destruction of memory. The surroundings of everyday life are shared with extreme intimacy. For Apichatpong, Thailand, while full of beauty, is slowly collapsing into darkness.

Our take

Apichatpong’s long-awaited new feature played Cannes this year, but features are only a small part of his body of work: even while we waited, he kept busy as a highly prolific, endlessly experimenting director of short films—including this enchanting snapshot in time, the latest in our series.
