Father jumps off roof. Economy caves in. Childhood sweetheart remains out of reach. Nice girl next door slides into prostitution. Elder brother knows better. Younger brother has no idea. Only a very special filmmaker could turn that into something light-footed and moving. As an editor, Lee Chatametikool has acquired the reputation of being a kind of doctor, the way you also have script doctors: someone who can get good stories that have foundered back on track and who doesn’t just heal but also improves. He has also released those magic healing powers in his feature debut as a director. A widely branching and layered story acquires an almost lighthearted form. Two time periods are flexibly interwoven. The film focuses on two brothers in Bangkok in 1997, the year when the Asian economy collapsed. But the childhood and school years of the brothers are just as important for the mood of the story. The filmmaker evokes the mood cleverly by reconstructing complete television and music shows from the period with his actors in the leading roles. The elder brother returns from New York to Bangkok after the father has committed suicide because of the crisis. He has to clear up the financial situation in the family company and look after his younger brother. Both brothers cherished a puppy love and this evokes yet other crises. This unusual and complex debut probably can’t be described as autobiographical, but Chatametikool did introduce his personal experiences as well: just like his protagonist, he moved between two cultures: America and Thailand.

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

Mother is a hybrid of fiction and documentary. It is a portrait of the complicated, fragile, painful and realistic relationship between my mother and me. In the past, she once tried to commit suicide. Though the action was failed, she was disabled. Since the incident, my family has changed forever, and the film is my attempt to explore and understand her, myself and my family. To put it in a wider context, I analogically portrayed how Thai middle class family effect- ed by Asian financial crisis in 1997(Tom Yam Kung Crisis) and explored the representation of family in Thai culture through the process of making this film. Thai media always shows Thai family with one dimension : the good and the bad. To understand the society, we need to go to the smallest institution of it : family. What is Thai family? What is its complexities? What are the ways each member deal with the world outside and inside? How does the family go through the radical change both from Thai society and the destiny and they dances around the reality and the fantasy of the familial representation.
