Mysterious Object at Noon stems from the free-floating development of a story begun by the director and continued by people the film crew met as it traveled through Thailand. Each new storyteller was allowed to pursue the story from any angle they wished, like the Surrealist "exquisite corpse" game that inspired the project. The story was then shot in dramatic form, using nonprofessional actors, and intercut with the earlier footage. The resulting film plays with everything from traditional fiction to the documentary style. 2000, Thailand, in Thai with English subtitles, 35mm, BW, 85 minutes.
