Weerasethakul filmed Ashes with a LomoKino, a then new, cheap and easy-to-use 35 mm camera. The bumpy images look like a home video; the fast cuts differ from the slow, meditative images of many of his films. In terms of content, he contrasts rural, intimate everyday scenes with the darker sides of social reality in Thailand.
