Skin Conversation

When two bodies come in contact with each other, what language do they speak?

How does the meeting of the skin communicate in ways that any forms of verbal (and virtual) communication cannot replace?

Narrated with a poem written to express an intense contact improvisation duet experience during the pandemic, accompanied by the movements of two bodies dancing in and out of contact, this short poetic film takes us through a story of meeting and parting, and questioning what the future might hold for this conversation.

Director Biography - Fern (Pimpakarn) Sripungwiwat

Born and raised in Thailand, I have been fascinated by the art of documenting rather than directing. My work is led by my own curiosity and question of the world around me.

I have worked as a short documentary video maker for a media platform in Thailand. Now, I work mainly as a producer, connecting and introducing foreigners to my country and my culture, bridging the barriers. On the side, I still engage in personal film and photography project to sustain my passion of storytelling.
