Sulphur Spring Wins Film of the month Judged by Apichatpong Weerasethakul!

I'm really excited that Sulphur Spring won the film of the month from Shooting people Judged by one of my favourite film makers Apichatpong Weerasethakul! He had these kind words to say. 

This film is like a painting. It forms a canvas from rocks, snow, water, wind, and clouds. Humanity is an intervention that tries to blend in with nature. It breathes in the wind. It tries to survive the cold air by touching, as if the wrinkles and the memories exude the warmth. I can watch this film over and over. I don’t understand it but it is just fascinating. The camera work invites us into the ritual, we are part of the alienation. The only thing I wish is that it was longer, so that there is the time for it to lend its weight onto the people inside the screen and those who watch them.
