Artist's Statement: 

The unconscious mind is the unknown in the shadow like an ocean of thoughts, memories, and dreams, all connected through a web of time. Once in a while we travel into the obscure place. During the journey there are spaces in between where we experience darkness and stillness, yet we move freely.

In this space lies all possibilities. The silence is always there before things are illuminated. This tempo of darkness and light becomes a rhythm in our consciousness. When we arrive at a place where light is reflected we begin to make sense of the experience through emotions and thoughts.

We must ask ourselves why we tend to look away from darkness?

Are we afraid of what we might see?

Different parts of the installation perform as triggers for imagination, memories, and emotions rather than providing fixed answers. The play of lighting, shadow, and color designs work in subtle ways and allow the subjects to be involved with more depth. Another Side of Darkness becomes a metaphor of the ‘Home’ or the ‘Self.’ Each individual is given a torch to explore and interact to make meanings of the experience for themselves. A torch has always been significant in human society as a mean of illumination. Human are drawn to light as a part of our survival instinct and the innate desire to evolve.

To shine light on something is to have the knowledge, and the knowledge drives away fear. The torch becomes a symbol of hope and the seeking of the awakening of the human consciousness. Darkness and light give meaning to one another.

To know light you must know darkness.

To know yourself you must explore the shadow within you and bring it to light.

"5 - 9"
Director’s statement

I always think of possibilities, if someone would think of his freedom, what would he do to achieve that? or If many fatal political clashes in Thai history were to judge in every possible angle with freedom of speech, how would Thailand be now?

It’s always difficult to predict the future but such medium as a movie, we as a filmmaker can demonstrate some of the possibilities that would happen if... and that reflects our limited choice as a people in the country.


© Scene from the movie 5 to 9
Synopsis
5 to 9 comprises four short films that transpire across 5pm to 9am on the evening of the historic Brazil-Germany match at World Cup 2014, spanning intimate vignettes of unrequited love and final meetings. In China, a young migrant worker has saved 3,000 RMB to finally spend a night with a middle-aged prostitute, but she plans to leave the city the same night instead. In Singapore, a local teacher and his paramour from China are out for a rendezvous, submitting the fate of their future to the result of the football match. The Japanese counterpart centres on a porno-projectionist collecting debts from the punks for the poor. The film concludes in Thailand with the filming of the last scene of a sci-fi movie. Behind the camera, the director is suspicious of his leading actor and the actress who is also his wife.


Rasiguet Sookkarn was born in Bangkok, Thailand. After graduated from architecture school, he started as an art director for several commercials and paved his way through a production designer for many awarded feature films such as "Eternity" (2010) directed by Sivaroj Kongsakul (Tiger Awards, Rotterdam Film Festival), "P-047" (2011) directed by Kongdej Jaturanrassamee (Venice Film Festival), "Tang-Wong" (2012) directed by Kongdej Jaturanrassamee (Berlin Film Festival), "36" (2012) directed by Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit (New Currents Award, FIPRESCI Awards, Pusan Film Festival) and "Mary is happy, Mary is happy." (2013) directed by Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit (Venice Biennale Collage).

Rasiguet received awards for his designs in his homeland and was selected to the Berlinale Talents 2014. He also directed MVs for indie bands in Thailand and co-directed an omnibus film with his berlinale colleagues in 5to9 (2015).

ลูกและช่วงเวลาที่มีให้กัน ทำให้เราได้ทบทวนเกี่ยวกับอดีตของตัวเอง ความเป็นมาจนเป็นตัวเราในวันนี้ เหมือนแสงของดวงอาทิตย์ที่โผล่พ้นขอบฟ้า ไล่ผ่านพื้นที่ต่างๆในใจเรา ค่อยๆให้เห็นทุกอย่างชัดเจน ก่อให้เกิดการตั้งคำถาม การเปลี่ยนแปลงในตัวเองมากมาย ก่อนนี้ เคยคิดแต่ว่าลูกๆโตขึ้นอยู่ฝ่ายเดียว แท้จริงแล้วเราเติบโตไปพร้อมๆกัน ทุกๆวันในความสัมพันธ์
