Apichatpong-a-rama: 31 directors tapped for soccer-themed Short Plays

Apichatpong Weerasethakul is among 31 directors who will take part in Short Plays, a football-themed anthology project that's set to be released in time to celebrate the FIFA World Cup, which is being played this June in Brazil.

According to Variety, Apichatpong's segment is set in his northeastern Thailand hometown of Khon Kaen, and will feature 22 shots of the city's lake, "almost the only recognizable feature from his childhood". The shots will be arranged like players in a soccer game.

Other directors include Carlos Reygadas, Vincent Gallo, Gaspar Noe and Dorris Dorrie.  The project is created by Mexican director Daniel Gruener.

Each segment should be three to five minutes long and largely dialogue free, offer an analogy to some aspect of football, "but feature ordinary people from the director’s own country," Variety says.
