Away / ไกลบ้าน
  • Year2019
  • Duration36 min

After the 2014 coup d’état in Thailand, 400 citizens associated with political activism were summoned by the Junta, and many more were accused. Writer-activist Wat Wanlayangkool was among those summoned. He decided not to report himself but instead to fly away from the country.
The film is a calm and gentle sequence of gestures, moments and conversations, where time slowly goes by, rain falls, food is cooked, and the same powerful resistance of this man sends light to every corner of this planet.

Away is screening in Sheffield alongside Remnants of Revolution on Sunday 4 October at 3:45pm 

Away is available on Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects and Doc/Player from Sunday 4 October at 5:45pm until Thursday 15 October at 11:59pm.
