International Competition 3: By The Skin of My Grief, I Kept Dancing When The Song was Over
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Parasite Family, dir. Prapat Jiwarangsan, Thailand 2022, 5 min.

Poring over shared histories and family affairs, actuality translates into an anticlimactic prophecy of romance. Confronting miseries of being misunderstood and swallowed by greed and pride, we understand that loss is part of life. And in these moments, instead of grieving, we become grief. A palaeontologist mourns a loved one as her team investigates the remains of an unknown creature. A young inmate awaits his parents’ visit before he faces the end.
