A unique film event will take place in a most spectacular location from March 9 to 13. “Film on the Rocks Yao Noi” is an inaugural gathering of art and film people at Six Senses, a luxurious resort on Yao Noi Island in Phangnga Bay.
The origin of “Film on the Rocks”, headlined “Primordial” for its first edition, is a process that combines various facets of film activities and the attempt to marry the thrilling location of Six Senses to the world of artistic films. The co-founders of the event are Nat Sarasas and Chomwan Weeraworawit, who invited Apichatpong and later Swinton to join them in putting together the event.
At the moment, confirmed guests who will arrive on the island next weekend, besides Swinton, include film-makers, artists, curators, critics and film festival top-ranks such as Chloe Sevigny, Gregg Araki, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Tsai Ming-liang, Lucrecia Martel, Ananda Everingham, Museum of Modern Art curator Joshua Siegel, Cannes Film Festival’s head of film department Christian Jeune, producer Simon Field, and many more.
