Bangkok IndieFest announces lineup, features the Last Elephants in Thailand
The first Bangkok IndieFest, set for next month, has announced its lineup, with around 80 shorts and features planned.
Among the films will be The Last Elephants in Thailand, a documentary by Donald Tayloe and Michelle Mizner on sad welfare of Thailand's pachyderms.
"Elephants have been used to promote tourism in Thailand, but little have they been helped," says Soraida Salwala, of Friends of the Asian Elephant and founder of the world's first elephant hospital.
She appears in the trailer at YouTube. It's embedded below.
Other films in the IndieFest lineup include Drown by Nottapon Boonprakob and Suck 3/2 Seed by Siwawut Sewatanon.
Bangkok IndieFest 1.0 runs from August 6 to 8 at HOF Art.
