Venice Film Festival 2011: Rirkrit's Lung Neaw, Passing through the Night

You've met Uncle Boonmee, now there's another Thai uncle to meet.

It's Uncle Neaw, in the feature documentary Lung Neaw Visits His Neighbours, the debut film by Rirkrit Tiravanija.

An internationally acclaimed visual artist, Rirkrit's a Silpathorn Award-laureate who's perhaps best known for cooking meals for visitors of his exhibitions.

Lung Neaw is one of two Thai films announced today for the Venice Film Festival.

It's playing in the Orizzonti (Horizons) section.

The other is a 13-minute short, Passing Through the Night by Wattanapume Laisuwanchai.

The fest, running August 31 to September 10, opens with George Clooney's political drama The Ides of March. Rope of Silicon has more on the line-up.
