Four Thai directors - Aditya Assarat, Wisit Sasanatieng, Chulayarnnon Siriphol and Apichatpong Weerasethakul - imagine what their country may look like in ten years time, following the format of the controversial Hong Kong anthology film Ten Years (2015). Direct from Cannes, this instalment offers visions of repressive censorship, oppressive martial rule and surreal feline overlords that reflect the political tumult of today’s Thailand.
