Thai Meteorites in Brisbane

The 17th St. George Bank Brisbane International Film Festival has a program of Thai films called "Meteorites: Thai Cinema on the Move" featuring Aditya Assarat's Wonderful Town, Pen-ek Ratanaruang's Ploy and Wisit Sasanatieng's The Unseeable.

Those are the usual films being shown at festivals around the world this year. But in a bit of a departure from most other festivals, Brisbane has also acquired four Thai short films.

Uruphong Raksasad's The Rocket is packaged with some other shorts from other countries. And Uruphong's The Planet is packaged with The Unseeable, as is A Voyage of Foreteller by Jakrawal Nilthamrong.

And Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Anthem will purify the sound system ahead of Ploy.

What a great idea to package the shorts with the features. I wonder if the programmers had intended to also get Apichatpong's short called Meteorites?
