Why and for whom do you film today?
Feature by: Alexis A. Tioseco
I make films to cure myself and hope it will cure some people, too.
Disillusioned by an industry interested only in ratings and profits, Uruphong Raksasad left his work as film editor and postproduction supervisor at major Thai film studios and decided to make independent grassroots films about life and nature around his native Chiang Rai. The March of Time (2000), the first segment of Stories from the North, was his thesis film at Thammasat University. He is currently completing the film Agrarian Utopia (expected: 2009).
