Thailand/ Germany/ 2021/ 90mins/ Thai/ English subtitles/ Hong Kong Premiere
The film contains nudity scenes and sexual content.
Danse Macabre is a dance that explores deaths that are remembered and forgotten in history, including those of kings, citizens and stateless people, on land that many kings chose as their vacation residence. A frenzied collage of suspicious deaths that have occurred in Thailand over the last 90 years, it is a daring mix of archive materials depicting extreme violence, symbolic narrative fiction and explicit dance clips sketching feverish homoerotic desire to re-enact full and frank the neglected, erased and forbidden story.
