6th October

The Terrorists
The massacre of students at Bangkok's Thammasat University on 6th October 1976 remains one of the most violent episodes in Thailand's modern history. Its depiction in films and art has caused controversy and led to censorship, in an ongoing effort to sanitise or whitewash the event. I've written a survey of the representation of the massacre in Thai cinema, covering documentaries, short films, and feature films.
