    Agrarian Utopia Synopsis

    Anthology presents a week-long run of Uruphong Raksasad's ravishing documentary/fiction hybrid, which portrays two rural families who, facing the seizure of their lands, come together to work the same rice paddy for a season, using pre-industrial farming methods. Its serenely beautiful imagery - golden fields, time-lapse skies - bespeaks a nostalgia for a simpler time, but Agrarian Utopia is also clear-sighted and tough-minded in its assessment of the present-day economic and political realities that have transformed Thailand's agricultural community. --(c)Forum
