Thai Film Archive and MUIC Film Club: Making Friends at 24fps

By Dr. Bryan Ott

On Saturday May 20th, the Film Club organized a day trip to visit the Thai Film Archive in Salaya, Nakhon Pathom province, and watch a rare screening of Thai filmmaker, Pen-ek Ratanaruang’s Last Life in The Universe (2003).

With a 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes, Last Life helped open Thai cinema to the world, and heralded director Pen-Ek as a commanding force in the Independent World Cinema scene. Twenty years later, it remains a film worthy of viewing and a must watch for fans of Thai Indie filmmaking. MUIC students enjoyed the film, and the post-screening tour of the incredible Thai Film Archive. See:
