Thai films in Toronto
Two Thai films, from two of Thailand's best directors, will make their North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Invisible Waves, Pen-Ek Ratanaruang's latest, starring Tadanobu Asano, is among "the best of the International Film Festival Circuit" while Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Syndromes and a Century, will play in Toronto after it screens in Venice.
In fact, the entire lineup of films commissioned for the New Crowned Hope Festival in celebration of Mozart's 250th birthday, of which Syndromes and A Century is part, will screen at Toronto.
Thanks to Twitch for keeping track of developments at Toronto.
