Never before screened in Minneapolis, Syndromes and a Century was voted the Best Film of the Decade in a recent Toronto International Film Festival poll. Inspired by the life of the director’s physician parents, the story is split into two sections—one set in a rural clinic, the other in an urban hospital. In each, the action and characters are repeated in an exploration of love and entangled human relationships. This transcendent film of gentle beauty was praised as “profoundly mysterious, erotic, funny, gentle, playful, utterly distinctive” (Guardian). 2006, in Thai with English subtitles, 35mm, 105 minutes.
