Mindfulness and Murder in L.A. and Istanbul
Director Tom Waller's monastic mystery Mindfulness and Murder (Sop Mai Ngeap, ศพไม่เงียบ) has headed back out on the festival circuit, screening this week in Los Angeles and Istanbul.
In Istanbul, it's at the International Crime and Punishment Festival.
In L.A., it's at Singafest, billed as "LA.'s newest international Asian film festival." It's showing on Saturday, October 1 at 5.30pm.
The screenings are in the Westwood neighborhood, at the classic old art-deco cinema, the Majestic Crest, a.k.a. the Bigfoot Crest.
Sadly, it appears Singafest might be the landmark Majestic Crest's last go as a movie palace before the owners, Bigfoot Entertainment, close it for reasons rather vaguely stated as "renovations".
Meanwhile, Mindfulness and Murder has been released on DVD in Thailand – no English subtitles, just in case you're wondering. Keep track of the movie on its Facebook page.
