PROGRAMMERS NOTES

Plantonic is a delightful play on words that uses cinematic metaphor to play with the structure of the common love story in an innovative and original way. As we watch two men search for resolution and connection after their love ends, Krit Komkrichwarakool uses wonderfully whimsical scoring, saturated colours, and rich textures reminiscent of Call Me by Your Name to invite the viewer into this incredibly touching tale of unrequited love.

In his thought-provoking film, Komkrichwarakool asks us to redefine what love looks like between two people, not only through means of a queer lens, but a human one.
