The selection for the Venice Film Festival is out and there's a Thai film in it - Syndromes and a Century, by Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
Formerly called Intimacy and Turbulence and commissioned for the New Crowned Hope festival in Vienna to celebrate Mozart's 250th birthday, Syndromes and a Century will premiere at Venice and then go on for screenings in Vienna and elsewhere.
Kong Rithdee has much more in today's Bangkok Post (Everything is illuminated and Lido Lights), so hustle on over and have a look. Kaiju Shakedown has a look at all the Asian films in Venice. Or there's the Associated Press story for a rundown on the other offerings.
