Boonsong Nakphoo, who last year did the well-received low-budget farmer drama Poor People the Great, has another movie out this week, Four Stations (Sathanee See Phak, สถานี 4 ภาค ), which offers four stories about ordinary people in each of the four regions of Thailand.
With support from the Culture Ministry's Office of Contemporary Art and Culture, Boonsong has adapted stories by well-known Thai authors who come from the ranks of the SEA Write Awards and National Artists.
The stories are "Dtu Pboo" ("ตุ๊ปู่") by Mala Kamchan (มาลา คำจันทร์) from the north, "Songkram Cheewít Suan Dtua Kongtoo Taa" ("สงครามชีวิตส่วนตัวของทู-ทา") by Wimon Sainimnuan, a.k.a. Wat Wanlayangkoon (วัฒน์ วรรลยางกูร) from the central plains, "Lom Laeng" ("ลมแล้ง") by Khamsing Srinawk a.k.a. Lao Khamhom (ลาว คำหอม) from the northeast and "Baan Glai Reuan Kiang" ("บ้านใกล้เรือนเคียง") by Paitoon Tanya (ไพฑูรย์ ธัญ ญา) from the south.
Opening tonight, it's at the Lido in Bangkok's Siam Square at 6.30 nightly until Wednesday, June 20.
