In this omnibus film, four Thai directors tell us how they envisage the future of their country. And so, we see four pieces where the future is mixed with a critique of the political situation in Thailand. Aditya Assarat films a young soldier in an art gallery, and subtly transmits the present state of repression. Wisit Sasanatieng shoots a futuristic fable full of cat people. The visual artist Chulayarnnon Siriphol fills the screen with colors in an animated dystopia. And the maestro Apichatpong Weerasethakul serenely captures a man talking about good sleep machines in a square overlooked by a national monument.
