Film conservation gets political

Now I understand why the Culture Ministry has an axe to grind. Its head, Anurak Chureemas, is a former (I read failed) filmmaker. So when a film conservation festival was set up, one of the films was his 1981 feature, Sai Sok, which was produced by none other than Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

The festival runs on December 24 at the National Film Theatre, which I think is somewhere in Bangkok. I haven't heard anymore about this or what other films are being shown.
