ACF 1538: LUNG NEAW VISITS HIS NEIGHBORS coming to MoMA

Lung Neaw Visits His Neighbours
Directed by Rirkrit Tiravanija
Thailand/Mexico, 2011, 154 minutes
In Thai; English subtitles
(Introduced by the producer Cristian Manzutto)
Where: Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53 Street, NYC

In Tiravanija’s second feature, Lung Neaw, a retired farmer, lives in a tranquil village in Chiang Mai, far from the recent political turmoil in Bangkok. At a moment when many people are demanding equality, opportunity, and democracy, we see in Lung Neaw an existence marked by compassion for his environment and his fellow villagers. The film offers a contemplative look at one man’s humble dialogue with his surroundings.

These screenings of Lung Neaw Visits His Neighbours are part of MoMA's ongoing ContemporAsian film series.
