Paradoxocracy returns

If you missed Paradoxocracy (ประชาธิป'ไทย, Prachathiptai) (and it's very possible you did) when it was released for a limited run in Bangkok in June, you now have another chance to catch it.

House on RCA has it listed on their schedule in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the October 14, 1973 student uprising against a military dictatorship.

Directed by Pen-ek Ratanaruang and Pasakorn Pramoolwong, the documentary gathers together a dozen or so academics who talk about the tumultuous times constitutional monarchy was put in place in 1932. Frank and sometimes funny, it's censored in a couple of places. If you're interested at all in Thai politics, hurry on over to House and catch it while you can.

Paradoxocracy will also screen at 1pm on Sunday, October 13, at the Thai Film Archive as part of a program that features two other documentaries, Ngao Prawat Sart (The Shadow of History) by Panu Aree and Octoblur (Lom Tulakom) by Patana Chirawong.
