    Giving women a voice

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 03/03/2017

    » A robust line-up of films is coming to us in HeForShe Arts Week Bangkok Film Festival. Organised by UN Women, next week's festival has selected films with messages on gender equality -- or inequality -- and unfair treatment of women in different cultures (not just in the "Third World" countries, to be sure). It sounds heavy, but the good thing is that the titles picked for the event this year are entertaining and heartfelt on top of being socially relevant.

    Colourful journey into Thailand's soul

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 20/01/2017

    » The train clangs ahead, moving people and dreams, as it has done since 1893. In Railway Sleepers, a minutely observed film shot entirely on-board a Thai train, we see kids on school trips, young men travelling north and south, hawkers selling food and horoscope books, families and lovers, vacationers who turn the sleeping car into a party venue. They're passengers, and they're also humans. They are, as director Sompot Chidgasornpongse says, a collection of faces that make up a portrait of Thailand.

    Into the strange forest

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 09/09/2016

    » The dirt road is dry and red, scorched by the Isan sun. The headmaster is wary, sardonic, and enervated by the heat. The students, or at least some of them, are bored and ironic ("What do you want to be when you grow up?" a teacher asks. "A bank robber," he deadpans.) Next to this poor state school is a forest, sun-dappled, mysterious and probably haunted. Girls are warned not to go in there because they may never come back out.

    Fun, healthy and charitable

    » There was a fine sprinkle of rain as the day broke, but that couldn't deter 3,000 runners from showing up to run for a good cause. Last Saturday, the 8th Bangkok Post International Mini Marathon took place at CentralWorld. The run, as usual, was a fun, healthy and charitable activity: this year the event raised more than 900,000 baht for Bangkok Post Foundation, which provides education scholarships to needy Thai students across the country.

    Santi-Vina finally comes home

    Life, Published on 22/07/2016

    » On July 15, the Thai Film Archive hosted the screening of Santi-Vina, the 1954 classic Thai film whose negative prints were thought to be lost before they were discovered at the British Film Institute in London two years ago. After a lengthy restoration process by a lab in Italy and a world premiere in Cannes, Santi-Vina returned home after six decades. The screening at Scala last Friday is sure to become a chapter in Thai cinema history: it was an emotional homecoming and the 800-seat theatre was full to the tilt, something that hadn't happened at the venue for a long time.
