Thailand’s answer to Gregg Araki’s works with aliens in the background. A young star disappears without a trace, his mother embarks on a search. A young prostitute sets up an S&M session with an older man. Their paths cross at the titular motel. Prabda Yoon has an amazing visual sensitivity, which shows itself in some of the shots invoking Wes Anderson. At the same time he is not afraid to shock, but intelligently, and asks questions about the insignificance of a solitary existence in our modern world – a hotbed of absurd. “Motel Mist” is an intricately built, amusing thriller for those who love completely unpredictable cinema.
Born in 1973 in Thailand. Writer, designer and director. Studied at Manhattan’s Parsons School of Design and Cooper Union. In 2002 he received the prestigious Southeast Asian Writers Award. Author of scripts to a couple of Thai films. “Motel Mist” is his directorial debut.
