Manta Ray

Manta Ray

A struggling and inventive fisherman finds a Rohingya man washed up in the mangroves and takes him home, nursing him back to health and, even though he is mute, integrates him into his Thai life and village. This first feature by painter and cinematographer Aroonpheng is an atmospheric and visually rich response to the refugee crises.
