Solids by the Seashore by Patiparn Boontarig

Two Awards in Busan!

LG OLED New Currents Award
We aimed to find a film embodying the primary significance of this award, which is a new vision. Each director provided unique answers, and our hearts were moved as we watched Solids by the Seashore.

Solids by the Seashore presents a variety of themes spanning between human and human, and human and nature, with a clear attitude in a flexible manner. Through images, it delicately connects not only human and nature but also the flow of time, tradition and change, the microscopic and the macroscopic, inviting one to imagine an uncertain future.

Solids by the Seashore by Patiparn Boontarig


Southern Thai town. On a once-sandy beach eroded by high tides and now replaced by artificial rock sea walls, two young women meet. Shati is a local Muslim woman from a conservative family. Fon is an activist-turned-visual artist, in town for the her new art exhibition. The deeper they get to know each other, the bigger Shati’s internal conflict with her traditional roots - that forbids same-sex relationship - becomes. Caught between fear and desire, she is reminded of the old cautionary tales from her childhood told by her late and beloved grandmother.

During Shati’s pivotal moment, on Fon’s last night in town, the strange otherworldly occurrences in the tales of Shati’s grandmother gradually start to happen. A storm is brewing. Whether it’s all a dream or not, Shati is making a decision to forge a path for herself, and comes to terms with who she is.

"Elevated by the sensitivity of the direction and an accomplished control of mood and atmosphere"
Allan Hunter, Screen International

"La mise en scène sensorielle de Patiparn Boontarig est une des réussites du long métrage. Le cinéaste se sert avec talent de ruptures atmosphériques. [...] c’est certainement là l’une des plus belles idées de l’année."
Nicolas Bardot, Le Polyester

"Solids by the Seashore emerging as a film definitely worth watching, particularly for art-house fans"
Panos Kotzathanasis, Asia Movie Pulse

"Patiparn Boontarig leans on magical realism, trying to reflect the dual yearnings for a life where one floats along the waves and one where one simply lets the waves crash into them"
John Tawasil, Film Police Reviews
