Railway Sleepers explores the close connection between Thai people and Thai railways, a celebration and record of what it is like to live in Thailand today. Shot over eight years on every active line of the Thai railway system, Sompot Chidgasornpongse's debut film condenses its footage to bring audiences on a trip from the north to the south of Thailand. An assistant director to Apichatpong Weerasethakul for several years, Chidgasornpongse studied architecture in Bangkok and film/ video at the California Institute of the Arts.

There is a post-screening conversation with director Sompot Chidgasornpongse.
