Note: Event is unofficial and unhosted. RSVPs are not necessary, but are encouraged. Showtime is 2 p.m. Running time is 94 minutes. Tickets are $10, available at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Web site (http://tickets.ybca.org/single/SelectSeating.aspx?p=16586).
I won't be around to host, but this one gets my seal of approval: my favorite flick of SFIFF 2010 (among those I hosted). As an added bonus, the filmmaker will appear in person for a discussion and Q&A.
The seventh feature by Pen-ek Ratanaruang, one of the leading filmmakers of Thailand's New Wave, is a supernaturally tinged meditation on love, fidelity and redemption.
The film plays as part of the series Thai Dreams: The Films of Pen-ek Ratanaruang (http://www.ybca.org/thai-dreams-films-pen-ek-ratanaruang), running through April 21 at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (http://ybca.org/).
Synopsis: A young couple in a rocky marriage is on a jungle camping retreat when the husband mysteriously vanishes. When he resurfaces days later at home, he's oddly changed -- and the jungle may hold the reasons why.
