Full Synopsis

After the death of her husband, Prae, left to bring up a young child, mourns her loss by wearing only black clothing and seeks solace in the sermon of a local abbot. Her life takes a darker turn when she becomes romantically involved with Tom, who works as a henchman of a nightclub owner. Prae gets entangled within a web of deception and blackmail, putting her own survival and that of her child at stake.

Considered the first Thai film noir, Black Silk was among the first Thai films that were screened at international film festivals, including the 11th Berlin International Film Festival. In 2020, the Thai Film Archive completed a 4K restoration of the film using the original 35mm negative. The restored film was selected for Cannes Classics at the 73rd Cannes Film Festival.
