Catch A Film & Join A Dialogue With Independent Filmmakers This 28 July In Bangkok

By Weijie Tan

Most of us have watched our fair share of movies, but what about having a discussion after watching an indie film?

If you’re a film buff and you happen to be in Thailand on 28 July 2018, you’ll get to experience this at Cinema Diverse, held at Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre.

The film you’ll be watching and discussing is Girlhood (2014). This French coming-of-age film won several awards at the Stockholm International Film Fest for ‘Best Cinematography’ and Bronze Horse for ‘Best Film’.

Focusing on a teenage girl who joins an all-girl gang on the streets of Paris, you can catch this electrifying and poignant film alongside Soifa Saenkhamkon and Tippawan Narintorn, acclaimed directors for various Thai independent films.

Subsequently, you can take part in a dialogue about the film. Opinions are welcome!

Unlike most other big-budget films, one of the obstacles during film production was that each actor in the film had no prior professional experience. They resided within a low-income housing project in Paris where the film was recorded. Imagine the work behind the scenes!

If you’re a cinephile or a budding critic, this event is perfect for you. Head down for a critically-acclaimed film, and stimulating discussion!

Dates & Times: 28 July 2018, 3pm – 8.30pm

Prices: THB 60 (approx. S$2.50)

Cinema Diverse 2018 – The Invisible Hands : Bangkok Arts And Culture Centre, 939 Rama I Rd, Khwaeng Wang Mai, Khet Pathum Wan, Bangkok, Thailand 10330 | Website | Facebook
