LAB PROJECT:

Thursday



Fragments is a collaboration between Sejla Kameric, a visual artist from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Anocha Suwichakornpong, a filmmaker from Thailand. The film will comprise a series of fragments, with each fragments narrative seemingly disconnected to one another. Some fragments will be short, lasting under a minute in duration, while some will be much longer. Some fragments will also be repeated, sometimes (but not always) with a slight variation. It is through these images, the sounds, and the rhythm, that the viewer is invited to connect their own memories to these fragments and (re)form the new narrative.
THE FILM WILL BE RELEASED IN 2015.
