For centuries, Thai people have believed in the power of talismanic tattoos. The tradition was passed down by generations of tattoo masters, who create the designs, and empower them with prayers.
Each year devotees pay respects to their tattoo masters at the “Wai Khru” (master day) ceremony. The devotees often enter a state of trance known as “Khong Khuen” (animal spirit possession) when they are “possessed” by the spirit of their tattoos.
The aim is to bring the audience the most immersive possible experience of the Wai Khru ceremonies and what it's like to be surrounded by people in an altered state of consciousness.
Film is cinema ready but viewing with HQ earphones can enhance the experience as soundtrack contains binaural beats.
