Taiki Sakpisit is a Thai filmmaker and visual artist. He uses the techniques and history of cinema to unpack Thailand’s troubled past, using those to embed a resounding but subtly expressed political commitment in his experimental films. His works explore the underlying tensions and conflicts and the sense of anticipation in contemporary Thailand through precise and sensorially overwhelming audio-visual assemblage using a wide range of sounds and images. His feature film The Edge of Daybreak (2021) premiered at IFFR in the Tiger Awards Competition and won the FIPRESCI award. He is currently an artist-in-residence at the Rijksakademie.
