Cinema Diverse: Director's Choice 2015

Date : 14 March 2015
Location: Auditorium, 5th floor
Time: 16.30 – 20.30 hrs.

Bangkok Art and Culture Centre proudly presents “Cinema Diverse: Director's Choice”. For the third Cinema Diverse, five international films, selected by five acclaimed Thai directors, will be shown bi-monthly from March – November 2015, followed by a talk with the Thai director after each screening.
The first screening on Saturday 14 March 2015 is supported by the Embassy of the United States of America. Frances Ha (USA/2012) is directed by Noah Baumbach. It has been chosen by Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit, the talented young Thai director of Mary Is Happy, Mary Is Happy, 36 and The Master. 
Frances Ha has been screened in many international film festivals and was nominated for Best Actress (Comedy or Musical) at the Golden Globes (2014) and Best International Independent Film at British Independent Film Awards (2014). 
“Frances Ha is like a checklist for all the confusions a graduate faces. The series of both short and long events unfold in the film telling stories of worry, fear and loss. The themes of lost childhood dream, and longing for the past are major themes throughout. Frances is an annoying but adorable character. We can easily empathise with her confusion through events that are at times comedic and at time tragic. Frances Ha makes us realise that every graduate, whether from New York or Bangkok, can be crazy and lose their way sometimes” Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit
Join us for the free screening of Frances Ha and a post screening talk with Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit with Kong Rithdee, a film writer/documentary director and Aditya Assarat, a producer/film director.

Background of Cinema Diverse: Director's Choice
by Arts Activity Department, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre
The first Cinema Diverse was created in 2013 by Bangkok Art and Culture Centre's Arts Activity Department as part of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre’s mission to promote arts and culture within the local community as well as encourage arts and cultural dialogue between the artists and general public.
This project aims to motivate arts and cultural values and give inspiration to the local community by screening international films with diverse cultural and social content.
Cinema Diverse tries to promote cinema not only as an entertaining experience but as an art form which can be used to project the thoughts, ideas and beliefs of the filmmakers.
Through this project, the audience is encouraged to discover new perspective, experience and knowledge from cinema as well as exchange ideas by taking part in the talk and the Q&A session after the screening with the filmmakers and film experts.
For Cinema Diverse: Director's Choice 2015 we have invited five acclaimed Thai directors to select five international films of their choosing. The chosen films address diverse cultural and social issues from which the audience can gain new ideas and perspectives.
All five screenings of Cinema Diverse: Director's Choice 2015 will be shown bi-monthly from March – November 2015. After each screening there will be a talk and Q&A session to discuss ideas and thoughts about the film with the Thai director and film expert.
We hope that Cinema Diverse: Director's Choice 2015 will inspire, build up dialogue and encourage the exchange of new ideas, knowledge and creativity between the public and the filmmakers.
