HI-SO premieres in the UK on 1 March 2013 at Curzon Renoir. Set against the backdrop of a post-tsunami Thailand, Aditya Assarat’s second film features Thai film star Ananda Everingham in a bittersweet tale of love, memories and belonging.

Day for Night founder Sonali Joshi said:
“We’re really excited about this new venture into distribution which has evolved as a natural extension of our film curatorial activities. Our aim is to develop a slate of films that represents some of the freshest and most distinctive titles from around the world – a curated library of films with a particular focus on outstanding up-and-coming filmmakers.
“We’re delighted to present Aditya Assarat’s second feature, HI-SO as our first title – a film that is reminiscent of François Truffaut’s classic, DAY FOR NIGHT, hence it seemed a natural choice to launch our distribution activities with this beautifully atmospheric film.”
HI-SO is released in the UK on 1 March 2013. THURSDAY TILL SUNDAY is released in the UK on 5 April 2013.
