Every day this month, Bangkok's TCDC will screen three vintage Thai films as part of its Visual Project series. The screenings, titled Very Thai, include Wisit Sasanatieng's Thai 'new wave' cult classic Tears Of The Black Tiger. (Previous Visual Project seasons have included Woody Allen films, Picasso documentaries, and Creativities Unfold highlights.)
Wisit's film is a combination of Spaghetti western and melodramatic Thai 'lakorn' drama, and it has a uniquely over-saturated colour palette. It has previously been shown at the National Film Archive in 2009 and 2010, and at BACC in 2012. Tears Of The Black Tiger was his debut feature, and his subsequent films are Citizen Dog, The Unseeable, The Red Eagle, and รุ่นพี่.
