Description: In Thailand, rice is the basis of each meal. Tiny wonder then that the crop is praised in many ways. In this lyrical film, the rice cycle is given a musical accompaniment - from the moment the crop is planted in endless, moist fields beneath spectacular cloudy skies until the cooked rice is shared out in temples. A significant part of the movie is dedicated to the harvest celebrations, at which boys race on bulls and set off large (and potentially deadly) homemade fireworks, and girls swathed in gleaming, colorful fabrics and headpieces transport seductively to hypnotic, drawn-out beats. There are songs praising the qualities of rice, songs about harvesting and preparing it - some simple, some accompanied by an exuberant movie clip. And there are moments when the pace slackens - literally - when the photos speak for themselves, in slow motion, and say a storyline of deep-rooted traditions and affinity with the land that produces this celebrated foodstuff.
