Film Synopsis

Blending creative documentary with cinematic realism, Krabi, 2562 explores the landscape and stories within the community of Krabi in southern Thailand – a major tourist destination. . A woman with changing identities guides viewers through the legend of Krabi with its folklore, history and important sites. Fictional narrative, interviews and oral tradition mix as the filmmakers capture the town in this specific moment where the pre-historic, the more recent past and the contemporary world collide, sometimes uneasily. The film prioritises the quiet pace of nature rather than the fast-paced world of Thailand’s tourist scene. Filmed in collaboration between directors Anocha Suwichakornpong from Thailand and Ben Rivers from United Kingdom, both known for the experimental nature of their works, Krabi 2562 is a reflection on the nature of memory and the way tourism encroaches upon nature.
