    Mama's boy

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 05/09/2014

    » Mining your own family for stories is a convenient and sometimes painful process. Vorakorn Ruetaivanichkul turned his camera toward his mother, who tried to commit suicide years ago. That pilot project later became a 60-minute film that mixes home movie footage, documentary re-enactment and fantasy sequences. Mother was Vorakorn's graduation film at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang in 2010, and now it will be released at House RCA on Sept 11.

    Sex, truth & politics

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 11/09/2017

    » In Uthis Haemamool's new novel, the protagonist's erotic adventure runs parallel to Thailand's political education.

    The Dark Ages

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 08/09/2017

    » I was taught that the Roman Empire fell to the barbarians in 476 AD. My next grade teacher was vague. There were the Dark Ages, Medieval times and Middle Ages. I heard the word Byzantine only once, when the Turks captured Constantinople in 1455 AD. The Crusades took place halfway between.
