Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit Twitter-View

The highly original and talented Thai filmmaker Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit has made the formally experimental features 36 (2012) and Mary Is Happy, Mary Is Happy (2013) – the former conjured from 36 shots, the latter based upon a young woman’s Twitter feed. Thamrongrattanarit enthusiastically agreed to be interviewed through his natural medium, Twitter. A part of this character-constrained conversation was published in Little White Lies – but here is the full ‘transcript’ – reordered, Storified and rendered unto the ether, so that the whole ephemeral exercise may be granted its precarious digital half-life [indeed, since publication, Storify has announced its end.]

(“Thanks so much, Anton. I’m happy.”)

(“Thanks everyone, sorry for making your timeline a little messy, but it’s done.”)
