Kongdej's P-047 added to Venice fest

There's been a late, late addition to the Venice Film Festival's Horizons program.

It's P-047, the new indie feature by writer-director Kongdej Jaturanrasamee.

Rumors about Kongdej's first indie feature going to Venice surfaced late in the week and it was confirmed last night by producer Soros Sukhum that P-047 would screen out of competition.

P-047 previously had a post-production screening at the recent Paris Project Screenings at the Paris Cinema International Film Festival.

It's the story of two young men who work at a shopping mall – a locksmith at a key-making booth and a clerk from the neighboring magazine stall – who become friends and then break into apartments and "borrow" things.

Another late addition to Venice was Filipino indie godfather Lav Diaz's latest, Century of Birthing (Siglo ng pagluluwal), but P-047 comes even after that.

Two other Thai films were previously announced for Venice: the feature documentary Lung Neaw Visits His Neighbours, the debut film by Rirkrit Tiravanija and the short, Passing Through the Night by Wattanapume Laisuwanchai.

The Venice Film Festival runs from August 31 to September 10.
