Nitchapoom Chaianun's documentary I am the Director (ฝันฉันคือผู้กำกับ, Fun Chan Kue Phoo Kamkab) is scheduled for a limited release this week, playing from Thursday until April 19 at 6.30 nightly at the Lido multiplex in Siam Square.
Nine young directors are interviewed. Five are already established, either working for big-industry studios or as independents: Sakchai Deenan (Sabaidee Luang Prabang), Aditya Assarat (Wonderful Town), Wittaya Tong-U-Yong (The Little Comedian), Chookiat Sakveerakul (Love of Siam) and Komkrit Treewimol (Dear Dakanda). And there are four other young filmmakers who want to be directors: Uten Sririwi, Supakit Seksuwan, Harin Paesongthai and Pitchaya Jarusboonpracha.
I am the Director has had various screenings before, including last year's World Film Festival of Bangkok.
It's an illuminating look at Thailand's film industry and indie scene, and well worth watching.
There's an English-subtitled trailer at YouTube, and it's embedded below.
