Nang Nak

Nonzee Nimibutr / Thailand / 1999 / 100 min


In 1999, Nonzee Nimibutr, whose success has been credited with opening the Thai film industry to such visionaries as Wisit Sasanatieng and Apitchatpong Weeresathakul, electrified cinemagoers with the horror film NANG NAK(SFIAAFF’00). Based on a traditional Thai folk legend, NANG NAK cinematically re-envisions the tale of a wife whose eternal love for her family binds her to the earth even after her death. In a rural village, Nak (Intira Jaroenpura) watches as her husband Mak (Winai Kraibutr) goes off to war. A year later, a beaten and half-dead Mak comes home to the welcoming arms of his wife and newly born child. But, the joyous reunion doesn’t last long as, one by one, neighbors and friends begin to die in horrible, untimely ways. Masashi Niwano This screening is part of SFIAAFF29’s After Death: Retrospective on Horror Cinema of South East Asia.
