In much of Thailand, rice is its lifeblood. It fills the lush landscape, takes centre stage at village festivals, and lays the foundation for stories and songs from generation to generation. Director Uruphong Raksasad draws us in with captivating vignettes unveiling how rice pervades the lives of the Thai people. Whether it is at a buffalo race or a community procession, the result is an impressionistic ode to rice and the powerful force of nature.

Considered one of the most acclaimed filmmakers from Thailand today, Uruphong has dedicated himself to telling imaginative stories about rice. In this third part of his trilogy, he allows the lyrical cycle of rice to pace itself, establishing a slow, mystical celebration that meanders its way into the hearts of the viewer.
