In the self-reflexive work of Thai filmmaker Sorayos Prapapan, independent film production and culture provide a foundation on which Prapapan builds quietly savage and funny social critiques. He sets his sights on the hierarchical structure of Thai society, corruption and military influence, but also on the clout of the West, seen through the prism of the film festival circuit. This first programme focuses on Sorayos’ films about the precariousness of the filmmaking process itself, the challenges of raising funds whilst sustaining a truly independent vision.

The programme is accompanied by an exclusive interview with Sorayos conducted by writer Gail Tolley.
