This debut feature by visual artist Rirkrit Tiravanija is a portrait of the slow passage of time and simplicity of everyday life in a small village near Chiang Mai. The artist follows old uncle Lung Neaw with a 16mm camera during his daily routines. With compassion and humility, we see him walk, talk, eat, pray, cook, hunt, smoke, drink and visit his neighbours.
