New Waves shines a spotlight on young filmmakers who are making waves through the archipelago, forming an emerging community within Southeast Asia. Join them in a series of dialogues with Singaporean artists, writers and curators from different disciplines, as they recollect their entrance into cinema, their unique and personal approaches to utilising film as a mode of expression, and its convergence with other art forms and everyday life. Come participate in these open dialogue sessions to find out more about this emerging community of filmmakers in anticipation of the upcoming 27th edition of the Singapore International Film Festival.
Chulayarnnon Siriphol [Thailand]: Vanishing Memories – Between Video Art and Cinema
(In dialogue with Chun Kai Qun)
Intersecting between video art and cinema, Chulayarnnon Siriphol is a prominent young artist with a slate of experimental films usually presented in galleries rather than cinema halls. He is often compared to his Thai film contemporaries Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Jakrawal Nilthamrong. Chulayarnnon will present excerpts of his earlier works, including Sleeping Beauty, which capture day and night in a hypnotic exercise; which eventually led to his short film, Vanishing Horizon of the Sea (Special Mention, SGIFF Silver Screen Awards 2014). In dialogue with artist-curator Chun Kai Qun, Chulayarnnon will talk about the experimental art of filmmaking, and the personal and political core of his playfully subversive projects. Both films will be screened during this session.
