2004 Thai film Tropical Malady (Satpralat) with ReelQ and City of Asylum, August 25.


ReelQ and the City of Asylum will present the 2004 Thai film Tropical Malady (Satpralat) on August 25.
‘Winner of the Special Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and an official selection of the New York Film Festival, TROPICAL MALADY is the lyrical and mysterious new film by maverick Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Blissfully Yours), one of the most prominent young directors of the Thai New Wave. TROPICAL MALADY chronicles the mystical love affair between a young soldier and the country boy he seduces, soon to be disrupted by the boy’s sudden disappearance. Local legends claim the boy was transformed into a mythic wild beast, and the soldier journeys alone into the heart of the Thai jungle in search of him.
The movie starts at 7:00 pm and will be streamed online. It's free but registration is required.
