Korakrit's Life/Cycle, held throughout the exhibition "Korakrit Arunanondchai: 2558," puts the artist's work in conversation with films that have inspired him, allowing audiences to explore connections through which much of his work is derived. In this series of screenings, we investigate themes of mortality, temporality, cyclicality, and identity.

About the Film

Written and directed by Milcho Manchevski, Before the Rain tells three, tragic love stories unfolding in Macedonia and London. Using a circular narrative approach, the seemingly unrelated details of each are finally intertwined to create a powerful portrait of modern Europe, ending with the same shot with which it began.
