Bangkok Cinema Scene special: Eternally Yours – Sivaroj Kongsakul retrospective
Sivaroj Kongsakul's award-winning debut feature Eternity (ที่รัก, Tee Rak) has entered the second week of a monthlong limited run in Bangkok as part of the Extra Virgin Director's Screen Project.
It's been screening at SF World Cinema at CentralWorld on weeknights at 7.30 and 2.30 and 7.10pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
After this Saturday's matinee, there's a whole bunch of love of Sivaroj lined up, starting with a Q&A with the director after the movie.
hen, at 5pm, the film-activist group Third Class Citizen will show Sivaroj's short films. That'll be in the Eat@DoubleU restaurant, right outside theater 10 at SFW CentralWorld. They set up some little stools you can perch on while you watch the films for free.
The shorts include his award-winners Always and Silencio.
Most will have English subtitles.
The Nation has more about Sivaroj, as well as filmmaker Pramote Sangsorn and their residencency earlier this year in Paris as part of the Cannes Cinefondation program.
