Vanishing Point

a film by Jakrawal Nilthamrong


The film takes on the experience from a car accident of the director’s parents 32 years ago. It’s a story of two men who each is running away from a suffering of their own, at different time and place. A young idealistic journalist who cannot stand injustice, and a middle-aged man who turns away from his past and goes on living a meaningless life of motel owner. They eventually learn that no matter how far and long they would go, the suffering in their minds have never gone away. Until lives reach the unexpected end.
