Review

is a film which shows the director s love of Lanna, a northern village of Thailand. This story, based on the short film , which is the director´s graduation film, consists of nine short stories depicting the people of Lanna village, the village landscape, and life in the rural village. The film features the everyday lives of the farmers who sow despite the rain and wind and cultivate land night and day, children catching fish in the day and telling ghost stories in the night, an anxious farmer who loses his cow, his only possession, and an old lady who prays for the success of her son and grandson who left for the city. The stories remind us of life in the rural village which disappeared with modernization. In addition, the film features the sound of nature and the slow and natural lifestyle that we used to have. The director, who had worked for Thai TV stations and major film companies, gave up life in the city and went back to his rural hometown and is currently making films there. This poetic film portrays the love and affection the director has for the countryside.
