Japanese director Katsuya Tomita, who broke out in 2011 with Saudade, delves behind the neon facade of sex tourism in a Bangkok red- light district. Luck is the queen of Paradise, a brothel in the Thai capital frequented by Japanese expats. One day, she comes across Ozawa, a former client and lover. They set off on a road trip to the backcountry near the Laos border. Like an archaeologist, the filmmaker reveals the layers of colonial heritage embedded in the globalized present. A meandering epic that roams over the shards of broken dreams, carried by an electrifying score.NORTH AMERICAN PREMIEREIN COMPETITION
