Come Here Jai jumlong

  Anocha Suwichakornpong

  Thailand     69 minutes

Synopsis

In this entrancing cinematic idyll, four twenty-something theater actors from Bangkok spend their days drinking, talking, smoking, and rehearsing scenes from a play while vacationing in Western Thailand. They explore the area, attempting to visit a now-closed World War II memorial; sounds of construction can be heard in the distance, and fireworks explode in the sky. Elsewhere, a woman wanders through a forest in search of her friend. Is this all a dream? Photographed in beautiful black and white and featuring a set of hypnotic images of landscapes, monuments, performance spaces, and abandoned architecture, Come Here is an atmospheric exploration into questions of history, cultural memory, and the artifice that connects them.
