    A BALLOON'S LANDING (Angel Teng 2024)

    As a queer romance this is just one long tease, but what a swoony non-couple the two leads make, and what a sweet, poetic load of silliness the frame story is! This is the international premiere.

    A Balloon's Landing 我在這裡等你 ("I'll Be Here Waiting for You"), 100 min. Screened for this review as part of the 2024 NYAFF.
    SCHEDULE:

    SUPPOSED (Thanakorn Pongsuwan 2023)

    Portrait of a dating app romance shows the elusiveness of such unions: the man never has a hold on the beautiful young woman he's found or knows who she is. The director fails to stick the ending but must be forgiven because it is the last film he made before he died at 46 of lymphoma.

    Supposed, 100 mins., opened in Thailand Dec. 5, 2023, debuting at the Osaka Asian Film Festival Mar. 4, 2024. It was screened for this review as part of the 2024 NYAFF (Jul. 12-28).
    SCHEDULE:
    Sunday July 14, 3:30pm
    Film at Lincoln Center
    Intro with cast members Ananda Everingham & Chayanit Chansangavej
