    • Synopsis

    • Malila is a visual poetry of life of a gay couple combined with a traditional Thai Bai Sri art and Buddhist philosophy. It is about love, longing and recalling the painful memories. Two gay men who once were lovers are trying to heal the pain of their contemporary lives by reviving their old romance through the fabricating of the traditional Thai Bai Sri: a traditional Thai ornament which is made of banana leaves and flowers and symbolizes love and virtue. After the death of one main character, the other one wanders through the forest and cemetery along Thai- Burmese border. The film is the tale of love and death; beauty and mortality; Bai Sri and corpses.
