Winner of the Rotterdam Tiger Award, Vanishing Point takes a kaleidoscopic approach to storytelling. The film’s main narrative follows several characters—a young journalist, a motel owner and a monk—whose narratives each provide a different piece of a puzzle revolving around a car accident. Inspired by a real-life car accident that involved his parents, the film is not simply a recounting of an event and the lives of the people involved; instead, Nilthamrong imagines the alternate lives and pathways of his characters crisscrossing with one another across time, with no beginning and no end.
