Shakespeare Must Die wins in Tripoli

Banned in Thailand, Ing K.'s Macbeth adaptation Shakespeare Must Die  (เชคสเปียร์ต้องตาย, Shakespeare Tong Tai), is finding its way onto the big screen in other countries, most recently winning the Grand Prize in Fiction and NETPAC Prize at the inaugural Tripoli International Film Festival in Lebanon.

The NETPAC Prize, from the Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema, was shared with Liberta by Kan Lume.

Shakespeare Must Die, which is a political satire, has been banned on the grounds that it is a "threat to national unity".

The banning of the film was extensively covered in a followup documentary by Ing K. and her producer Manit Sriwanichpoom, Censor Must Die.

Shakespeare Must Die previously screened overseas at last year's Cinema Digital Seoul Film Festival.
