Mundane History in Paris competition; High Society, Eternity in project screenings
Mundane History (Jao Nok Krajok) is in the competition at the Paris Cinema International Film Festival.
Anocha Suwichakornpong's non-linear family-and-social drama just won the Transilvania Trophy at the Transilvania International Film Festival, and is next headed for the Munich Film Festival, where it's playing in the Focus on the Far East alongside Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives.
Paris Cinema also has the Paris Project, which will host a screening of Aditya Assarat’s High Society, which came from a previous edition of the Paris Project. The drama starring Ananda Everingham, Cerise Leang and Sajee Apiwong is in post-production. Aditya's semi-autobiographical drama is about a Thai man who studies overseas and his difficulties connecting in relationships with two women.
The project will also have a post-production screening of "films discovered this year", among them Eternity by Sivaroj Kongsakul, produced by Aditya and Pop Pictures. The drama tracks a man through "three stages of being – as a ghost wandering through his childhood home, as a young man falling in love with his future wife, and as an absence in the life of his surviving family in the days following his death."
The Paris Cinema International Film Festival runs from July 3 to 13.
