With the screening of Korakrit Arunanondchai‘s Painting with history in a room filled with people with funny names 3 (10-23 July 2016), Vdrome has reached one hundred films and videos.

Born out of the desire to share outstanding films and videos by artists and experimental filmmakers, and to pair them with specifically-commissioned conversations and introductory texts, Vdrome is an online platform that offers regular, high quality screenings of works that lie in-between contemporary art and cinema.As in a movie theatre, each screening is presented during a limited period and the film is then replaced by a new one.

Introduced by James English Leary, Painting with history in a room filled with people with funny names 3 is the epilogue of a trilogy of videos that began in 2012. Here the character of the denim painter talks to Chantri, both a spirit and a drone. In a time when technological singularity does not seem like science-fiction anymore and spirits could equal to information, the video attempts to find a space for the past in the near future.
