Archipelago Cinema, an auditorium raft designed to float on the sea, premiered at the inaugural edition of the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi Festival, curated by Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton. The Festival, which took place from 9th-12th of March 2012, is set to become an annual meeting place for art and film.
This amazing scenery is in the rocky shoreline of Yao Noi, Thailand. The Archipelago Cinema is part of the event organized by Film on the Rocks Yao Noi, a new film festival curated by Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton. The auditorium raft was designed by German-born and Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren, it was built using recycled materials. The guests are taken to the awe-inspiring glowing raft by boat, in the middle of the quiet waters of Nai Pi Lae lagoon on Kudu Island. The only problem is you might miss what´s going on in the movie whilst admiring the dramatic landscape surrounding you.
