Pramote retrospective on Friday at Jim Thompson House

Actor-turned-filmmaker Pramote Sangsorn will have a retrospective of six of his short films at 7pm on Friday, April 24, in the William Warren Library at the Jim Thompson Art Center in Bangkok.

The works will include Tsu (สึ), Pramote's contribution to the Tsunami Digital Short Films project in 2005. It was the first Thai short film to be selected for the Venice Film Festival.

There will also be Observation of the Monk (เมืองนิมิต, Muang Nimit), which premiered last year at the fifth Bangkok Experimental Film Festival. It features well-known playwright and performance artist Wannasuk "Kuck" Sirilar as a monk, lost in the city.

He'll show his debut film Fish Don't Fly from 2002, Full Length from 2003 and two more works from last year, Bharramanuh (ปรมาณู) and The New Regime (อำนาจใหม่, Amnaj Mai).

There’s also be a poetry reading and discussion with the director -- a teen idol in the 1980s and '90s (he starred in Romantic Blue).

The screening is organized by the Third Class Citizen, which holds monthly short-film screenings at the library, which is part of the Jim Thompson House complex at the end of Kasemsan Soi 2, opposite National Stadium.
