The inaugural short for #FilmShortFridays, a series of Jon’s experimental video, film, and shadow puppet theater Nang Thotlong New Albany – หนังทดลอง นิว อัลบานี!
This is a short scene from the 1927 film, Chang (ช้าง), which introduces the Kru’s family members to the viewer. Though the daughter is the first to appear, she is not named unlike her mother Chantui, and brother Nah.
The score is an excerpt from Jon Silpayamanant’s “Homrong Isaan” (2023).
