The corporeal and the cosmic collide to mesmerizing effect in this galaxy-brain stunner from Thai auteur Anocha Suwichakornpong. Mundane History begins straightforwardly enough, as nurse Pun takes a new job caring for Ake, a paralyzed young man whose angry defiance gradually softens into grudging respect. But as the two men form a tentative friendship, Anocha explodes her own film, blowing open an abstract realm that encompasses everything from dream worlds to Thai history to the miracle of birth to the death of stars. At once slyly unassuming and dazzlingly ambitious, this existential odyssey heralded the arrival of a bold new visionary of Thai cinema. 35mm print courtesy of the Thai Film Archive.
