Information

The “Cinema Diverse: Director’s Choice” film festival, showing five international movie chosen by five acclaimed Thai directors, is back this month with its penultimate offering at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. The festival’s fifth film on offer, Autumn Spring, was made in the Czech Republic and was chosen by Jira Maligool, director of The Tin Mine and Mekhong Full Moon Party, who will be holding a talk after the screening. Directed by Vladimír Michálek, the 2001 film is described by Jira as “a kids’ film played by elders — a film for those who are still young at heart”. This bittersweet blanket of a film wraps disheartening preconceptions of growing old in a cocoon of poignancy. Fanda is portrayed with an exquisite blend of pathos and hilarity. All the characters are skilfully presented with depth and complexity, as Michalek creates in Autumn Spring a comedy that successfully holds onto its charm despite its delicate subject matter, without appearing saccharine. The screening starts at 5.30pm on July 19, with Thai and English subtitles. Free admission.
