Documentary banned from Thai film festival
“An independent Thai film featuring gay issues and footage of the Tak Bai incident has been banned by the Ministry of Culture from showing at next month’s World Film Festival of Bangkok.
This Area Is Under Quarantine, an experimental documentary that links the problems faced by gays and Muslims, was directed by Thunska Pansittivorakul, who was named Silapathorn Artist by the same ministry in 2007.
The film has become the first casualty of the confusing new regulations regarding the classification system to be used at special screenings and film festivals.”
