Thailand’s Ministry of Culture is once again organizing the Thai Pitch event at this year’s Cannes Film Festival market. Four projects from well-regarded Thai filmmakers have been chosen to take part in this year’s initiative, to be held on Saturday May 18th from 10:00-15:30. The event will take place at the Thailand Pavilion in Cannes’ Village International no. 140. This year, Thai Pitch will be coordinated by producer and film programmer Raymond Phathanavirangoon.

The four projects include:

A CULINARY MURDER

dir: Somkiat Vithuranich (OCTOBER SONATA)

prod: Pawas Sawatchaiyamet (HEADSHOT, RED EAGLE)

Born poor and raised as the kitchen maid to a wealthy, corrupt family, Anoma spends her childhood learning that the secrets to a man’s heart lie in his stomach. When she is made to marry the master of the house, she begins to transform her culinary skills into a deadly weapon. If food could kill, then her food is the deadliest.

THE WHITE BUFFALO

dir: Aditya Assarat (WONDERFUL TOWN, HI-SO)

prod: Aditya Assarat, Soros Sukhum (MUNDANE HISTORY, P-047)

This is the story of Peter, a European, who is married to a Thai woman and living in her village. It is a situation that reflects a colonial past, an age when white men came to the East to exploit and build their own paradise. But today, the balance of power has changed. The European is large only in body. He is no match for the cunning and deceit of the Thais.
