Taking the Thammasat student massacre of 1976 as its starting point, By the Time it Gets Dark intricately weaves together the lives of various characters in this beguiling and dizzying second feature by Anocha Suwichakornpong.

The lives of a documentary filmmaker and her subject, a former a student activist, a waitress who constantly drifts from one job to another, an actor and an actress are all loosely connected, hinging on a series of almost invisible threads, while the narrative doesn’t fail to surprise as it unfolds, layer upon layer.

The film intricately weaves together notions of memory, the political and the cinematic, offering a bold exploration into film and the possibilities of cinema itself.
