More Info Works / Players


Based on real-life, the experimental video work tells about the life of six international poker professionals living within Bangkok’s poker community. A player, who narrates the story, explains that playing poker is more a means to make money than a passion, yet the rules of the community follow the game’s logic. The players use probability theory – the fundamental theory of poker – to ensure that they treat each other justly and contribute equally. The real poker players are not seen in the film but Takala acts out all the described scenes.
