The number in the title, 2562, refers to this year (2019) according to the Buddhist calendar used in Thailand. Krabi is the name of a locality in a Southern region of the country. Filmmakers want to capture this town – which is a major tourist destination – at this particular time when the prehistoric, the more recent past and contemporary world collide, sometimes in a uneasily way, exploring its landscape, as well as the stories of the local community. Shot on super16 film in static compositions, with occasional subtle camera movements, the film lingers on shots, taking its time to observe the movements of people, light and animals.
