500,000 Pee (500,000 Years)

In Lampang, at the archeological site that found fossil of homoerectus 17 years ago, now no body care about this scientific discovery. Just locals went there for spiritual activity sometimes. One evening an outdoor cinema truck went there to screen a film as an offer to the ancient ghost, Kohka man, during the screening, something unexpected happened.

Biographie

Chai Siris, b. 1983, September 24  in Bangkok, lives in Chiang Mai (Thailand) and is a rising star in experimental cinema in Thailand and regularly collaborates with Apichatpong Weerasethakul. He is developing a body of works made up of films, videos and photos, dedicated to the reconstruction of personal and social narratives from different local communities (workers, migrants, villagers, families) where he gathers stories and aspirations. Starting with this part-documentary, part-fictional piece he presents a contemplative œuvre, between near and far, intimacy and history in the making. Chai Siris’s works were shown by renowned events including Documenta 13 and Venice International Film Festival.
