In 36, a location scout named Sai visits various sites, taking numerous photographs with an art director she has just met. On assignment to find buildings with the look and feel of the past, Sai and Oom’s mission takes them to the wreckage of a Vietnam War-era ‘love hotel,’ where the Buddhist notion of impermanence becomes part of the conversation. When Sai's memory stick fails her two years later, she finds herself longing for Oom and their experience together. Filmed in 36 shots, this arresting first film is spell-binding in its languid rhythms and promises a bright future for Thai director Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit.
