Limitless Cinema in Broken English

FUENG (2010, Teerani Siangsanoh+Wachara Gunha+Thani Thitiprawat), which is my most favorite film I saw in 2010, will be shown on Saturday, August 28, 11.00hrs, at BACC. This film liberates me from narrative prison and gives me the ultimate cinematic ecstasy. I worship FUENG as much as TAKE THE 5:10 TO DREAMLAND, KALYI—THE AGE OF DARKNESS, THE DEATH OF MARIA MALIBRAN, GREEN ROCKING CHAIR, and VIDEO 50 (Robert Wilson).

What I like very much in FUENG is the feelings that it is made up of unconnected scenes. But when these unconnected scenes are put together in this film, they yield the greatest cinematic bliss. FUENG reminds me of the ultimate joy I get from the following films:

1.BOONTHING (1991, Hamer Salwala + Saipin Kulkanokwan + Orawan Ovathasarn, Thailand)

2.THE DEATH OF MARIA MALIBRAN (1972, Werner Schroeter)

3.DON’T WARM EGG IN MICROWAVE OR ELSE IT WILL EXPLODE (2005, Tossapol Boonsinsukh, Thailand, 14 min)

4.ESCAPE FROM POPRAYA 2526 (2007, Paisit Panpruegsachat, Thailand)

5.FIREFIGHTER E.A. WINTERSTEIN (1968, Alexander Kluge, West Germany)

6.GREEN ROCKING CHAIR (2008, Roxlee, Philippines)

7.KALYI – THE AGE OF DARKNESS (1993, Fred Kelemen, Germany)

8.ORACLE (2007, Sebastian Diaz Morales)

9.PIPOP BUNTOON (พิภพบรรฑูรย์) (2001, Utis Haemamool, Thailand, 25 min)

10.SWEETHEART GARDEN (มธุรส) (2009, Tanatchai Bandasak, Thailand)

11.TAKE THE 5:10 TO DREAMLAND (1977, Bruce Conner, USA)

12.VIDEO 50 (1978, Robert Wilson)

13.WHAT HAPPENED TO MAGDALENA JUNG? (1983, Christoph Schlingensief, West Germany)
