Fahtum pandinsoong Has Problems in Thailand
According to the German news magazine Stern, Nontawat Numbenchapol's documentary Fahtum pandinsoong is just the third film to be banned by Thailand's censor's office since 2007. After its ban, censorship was applied and it could be screened in that version, eventually. And it's not that surprising.
After it was shown on the Berlinale festival, the censor's office in Thailand prohibited this for the uncut version of the documentary because it would threaten the national security. The film shows the role of the military in today's Thailand and contains interviews with soldiers that were on duty against demonstrations in Bangkok in 2010 and who later also got into a conflict with soldiers of the neighbouring Cambodia involving boundary disputes over the temple complex Preah Vihear.
Instead of a total ban that was issued last week, it now seems enough to mute some of the interview parts. Call that progress, if you want.
