Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC) will screen Between Two Worlds (2009), a drama directed by award-winning Sri Lankan film director Vimukthi Jayasundara, at the auditorium, on the fifth floor, on March 22 at 6pm.
This is the third film in the “Cinema Diverse: Director’s Choice” project, which aims to screen five international films, one every two months, selected by five acclaimed Thai directors. The project started in November.
Between Two Worlds portrays a surreal vision of one man’s experiences in a city that’s literally become alien to him. It has been shown at more than 100 film festivals around the world and was nominated for the Golden Lion at the Venice International Film Festival in 2009.
It also received a nomination for Achievement in Directing at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards 2009 in Australia and won the Best Asian Film Award at the Barcelona Asian Film Festival in 2010.
Between Two Worlds is due to be screened for the first time in Thailand at BACC by Pen-ek Ratanaruang, the celebrated Thai filmmaker who made Last Life In The Universe, Nymph, Headshot and Paradoxocracy.
After the screening there will be a talk with Pen-ek and Vimukthi. It will be conducted in Thai with an English translation. There will also be a masterclass with Vimukthi at Bangkok University, Rangsit campus, on March 24 from 1pm to 4pm.
The film will show in Thai and English subtitles. There is no admission fee.
