Prosperity for 2008 by Apichatpong Weerasethakul

A new short film by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Prosperity for 2008, has been released online. It can be found on Thunska Pansittivorakul's, or on YouTube, and now, here.

Could this be the new direction for Thailand's indie filmmakers, who are facing more restrictions and censorship under the forthcoming new film act? However, given YouTube's willingness to filter content deemed objectionable by the Thai government's culture watchdogs, YouTube might not necessarily be the most ideal outlet. But there are other, better video-sharing outlets besides YouTube.

Anyway, happy new year!
