Summary: Through an examination of post-1997 Thai cinema and video art, Arnika Fuhrmann shows how vernacular Buddhist tenets, stories, and images combine with sexual politics in figuring current struggles over notions of personhood, sexuality, and collective life. The drama, horror, heritage, and experimental art films she analyses draw on Buddhist-informed conceptions of impermanence and prominently feature the motif of the female ghost.
