Director: Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit
Death often comes unexpectedly – what happens the day before is usually quite ordinary: all the little things that make life worth living. In Bangkok, friends celebrate their graduation, siblings meet again, a couple separates, an actress is waiting to be called on set…
The latest film from Thai auteur and social media sensation, Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit, Die Tomorrow is a poetic and profoundly moving meditation on the brevity of life. Lyrical vignettes from the penultimate days of individuals, unaware they are soon to die, are interspersed with documentary footage of subjects young and old ruminating on their fear and acceptance of death.
