Heavenly Flower in Devil's Hand
(Dokfa nai meuman)

by Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL

MON_1
Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s debut feature draws on the human mosaic of  Bangkok and Thailand for the living material of his fiction, superimposing on it popular songs and television and radio series. Sitting on the bare ground among modest folk and the “fighters”, as Bertolt Brecht called them, the filmmaker invites anonymous characters to build a story based on the exquisite corpse game. Weerasethakul gives wings to a collective poem, to the expression of a people who are themselves the actors of their own history, while the camera is there to serve people rather than the opposite, constantly writing their future.
