Criticine No. 5 is up
The latest issue of the Southeast Asian film journal, Criticine is up -- has been up for awhile now.
Edited by Filipino film scholar Alexis A. Tioseco, the latest issue has a review of Syndromes and a Century by Kong Rithdee, and survey questions put to filmmakers and critics: Why and for Whom Do You Film Today? and Why and for Whom Do You Write/Work Today?
Among those answering are filmmakers Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Pen-ek Ratanaruang and Uruphong Raksasad, and scholars/critics Chalida Uabumrungjit, Kong Rithdee, May Ingawanij and Vipavinee Artpradid.
There's also part two of an interview with Sasithorn Ariyavicha, maker of the mind-blowing Birth of the Seanama, which is translated from a 2004 issue of Bioscope.
