Flat Earth

An experimental film by director Monique Verhoeckx about post-traumatic stress syndrome and its impact upon a family. JUNIOR and SENIOR deny the reality of their war trauma. In a surreal control-room full of surveillance monitors, war veteran SENIOR observes his son and switches back in time. When the images of his own captivity on the Thailand-Burma Railway unwittingly intrude upon him, SENIOR suddenly finds himself reliving his past in modern-day Thailand.
