Pen-ek Ratanaruang Goes Political In New Documentary PARADOXOCRACY

Pen-ek Ratanaruang, one of the most celebrated Thai filmmakers of the panorama, is back with Paradoxocracy, a documentary about Thailand's modern political history. The movie will feature a mix of archival footage and interviews, covering hot topics like the violent protests of the 1970s and the rise of Thaksin Shinawatra, one of the most controversial political figures in Thailand.

Due to its problematic subject, the documentary has encountered several difficulties, not least the reluctance of theatrical venues to show it. But now everything seems to be flowing the right way, and according to the official Facebook page, Paradoxocracy will have a limited run in two Bangkok theatres starting June 24 and running through July 3.

Check the trailer below.
