January 7-February 25
A certain eerily dilapidated short-time motel in Suthisarn is a favourite location for filmmakers and photojournalists. The stories they get from it might revolve around the seedy cesspool of the melodramatic lives of cheap pimps and prostitutes. But for Harit Srikhao—a thoughtful and imaginative 4th year photography student at King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang—it’s a universe that has locked away within its dimensions a haunting childhood memory, of a friend from middle school who had died young—the boy kidnapped by time, who’ll never grow up or grow old.
