63rd LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (2nd-13th October 2019) DAY 2
Every day (from October 2nd to October 13th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.

This Experimenta strand special presentation choice is also being screened at the ICA Cinema on October 13th at 12.15pm You can find the full details here.

London Film Festival introduction:
Anocha Suwichakornpong (By the Time It Gets Dark, LFF 2016) and Ben Rivers (The Sky Trembles and the Earth Is Afraid and the Two Eyes Are Not Brothers, LFF 2015) merge their unique cinematic languages across reality and folklore in South Thailand, creating a stylish meditation on the eponymous tourist town. They reunite with Suwichakornpong’s celebrated Hong Kong cinematographer Ming-Kai Leung and River’s research-focused experimental sonic artist Ernst Karel for the film’s rich sound design. A cast of real and imagined characters unreliably narrate your journey from fertility caves on paradise beaches to a bat-filled abandoned cinema. Then there’s an advertisement shoot by Oliver Laxe (Fire Will Come, in this year’s Dare strand), a secluded former boxing champion and flashes of the stunning coastal landscape’s pre-historic past. Together, the artists create an absorbing and playful portrait of a people, place and time that floats across fiction and reality, leaving haunting vignettes on the legacy of our age.
