Big Ears Listen With Feet

Boonserm Premthada is one of Thailand’s most original architects. Owing in part to his handicap – he has been practically deaf since birth – he has developed an architectural language all of his own. Just as it their last film, Tokyo Ride, about the architect Ryue Nishizawa, the filmmakers spend a day with the architect. They travel to places from Premthada’s youth – he grew up in the slums of Bangkok. And they visit his most spectacular works of architecture, including an extensive elephant resort in northern Thailand. It becomes a journey through a rapidly changing country, where the unique designs of an exceptional architect connect past and present.
