Like Raining at the End of April gets support from Rotterdam

Wichanon Somumjarn's debut feature Like Raining at the End of April (สิ้น เมษา ฝนตก มา ปรอย ปรอย) received a big boost from the International Film Festival Rotterdam's Hubert Bals Fund, with an award of cash for post-production and final financing.

Wichanon previously made the award-winning short Four Boys, White Whisky and Grilled Mouse. Like Raining, produced by Maenum Chagasik at Anocha Suwichakornpong's Electric Eel Films, is a "very low-budget film" about a construction foreman in Bangkok who's thrown out of work by political instability. He goes back to his hometown in the northeast of Thailand to attend a high-school friend's wedding, which is taking place during the Thai New Year in April – the hottest time of the year.

The film was previously pitched at the Paris Project Screenings.
