Concrete Clouds, Wonderful Town in Vesoul fest

Lee Chatametikool's Concrete Clouds will compete for the Golden Cyclo at the 20th Festival International des Cinémas d'Asie in Vesoul, France.

The fest also includes a 20th anniversary "carte blanche" program with Aditya Assarat's Wonderful Town, which Lee edited.

Other films in the main competition are The Ferry by Shi Wei (China), 10 Minutes by Lee Yong-seung from South Korea, Qissa by Anup Singh (India), Snow on Pines by Payman Maadi (Iran), Again by Kanai Junichi and Summer's End by Kumakiri Kazuyoshi (Japan), Quick Change by Eduardo Roy Jr. (Philippines) and Nobody's Home by Deniz Akçai (Turkey).

A release by the newly formed Mosquito Film Distribution, Concrete Clouds is about a stockbroker (Ananda Everingham) returning to Bangkok after the suicide of his father in the 1997 financial crisis. It previously screened in competition in Busan and is now in Rotterdam. It's the feature debut by Lee, who has long worked as a film editor and post-production hand on many, many films.

The Vesoul Festival International des Cinémas d'Asie runs from February 11 to 18.
