City of Long Stay

A 2022 documentary film examining the conditions and circumstances drawing Europeans and North Americans to migrate to Thailand for dementia care. We consider what this tells us about widespread infrastructure failure in the Global North and the new forms of care and intimacy developing in Chiang Mai.
