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.
