Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook - Two Planets/Village and Elsewhere (2008-12)
“Every life is in search of a narrative… For the storytelling impulse is, and always has been, a desire for a certain ‘unity of life’. In our own postmodern era of fragmentation and fracture…narrative provides us with one of our most viable forms of identity - individual and communal’” - Richard Kearney
“Two Planets/Village and Elsewhere is about the village (the here) and elsewhere (the there) and how stories link people across continents, cultures and even time-periods.
Rasdjarmrearnsook brought some visitors from elsewhere to her village in northern Thailand. The visitors came in the form of unfamiliar paintings and they told stories from long ago and far away: of dances in Parisian cafés, nude picnics and haymaking. These paintings by Renoir, Manet, and Van Gogh prompted the villagers to share their own stories.”

I cannot wait
Just a reminder:
When Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) was travelling on the road with his cousin, Al-Fadl ibn Abbas, a woman stopped him to ask him a question. The woman was very beautiful, and Al-Fadl couldn’t help but stare at her.
Seeing this, Prophet Muhammad reached out his hand and turned his cousin’s face away.
He didn’t tell the woman to cover her face.
He didn’t tell her to change her clothing.
He didn’t tell her that her appearance was too tempting or indecent.
He averted his cousin’s impolite stare.

This is so fucking disgusting. But positive representation doesn’t matter, right? Fuck. I’m so angry.
Im so horrified. i had an awful feeling this would happen as a result of this movie. It makes me angry to be right.
