Fade In / Fade Out: Fantastic Worlds - Citizen Dog (2004, Thailand)

Brought to you by National Library Board and Asian Film Archive

This October at Woodlands Regional Library, journey with us through fantastical worlds of Asian films from the 1960s - 2000s in this series of Fade In / Fade Out. From the absurd and laughable to the bizarre and downright grotesque, these stories reflect the power of the human imagination when fears and desires take the form of superstition, deities, mythical creatures and the supernatural.

Admission is free. No registration is required. Seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis. The house will open 30 minutes before the scheduled screening time.

Citizen Dog (2004, Thailand)

PG / Colour / Thai / English subtitles / 100 min

Director: Wisit Sasanatieng

Cast: Mahasamut Boonyaruk, Saengthong Gate-Uthong, Sawatwong Palakawong Na Autthaya

Country bumpkin Pod travels to Bangkok from the countryside, refusing to heed his granny's warning that he will grow a tail if he lived in the city. He finds a soulmate in Jin and they both live out their fantastical lives while trying to fulfill their dreams. 

Based on a novel written by Wisit's collaborative partner and wife, this colourful and surrealistic Thai romantic comedy has been frequently compared to Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Amélie.

Influenced by the Thai melodramas of the 1950s and 1960s, Wisit transforms the setting of contemporary Bangkok into a world similar to that of Wizard of Oz, where grandma reincarnates as a gecko, fingers reattach themselves and a dead motorcyclist becomes a zombie.

This film has screened at the Berlin Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival and the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, and commercially in France.
