Education in Thailand - What's new? What's still the same? Could the new budget turn the education system around?
A Dream Surely Vanishing is an on-going, joint photo documentary project. Its narrative vehicle is Burma's Irrawaddy River, as it flows past a stunning land and people of vast kindness being eroded by ill- planned economic development. Purposefully aimed away from the popular topics of ethnic armies, religious violence and drug abuse, this project seeks to connect its audience with the underrepresented people of Burma and the issues they face, while at the same time painting a picture of a breathtaking land being heralded as one of Asia's last economic frontiers.
'Goethe in Love', German Film at FCCT
A distinguished audience, including Cultural Attaches from many Embassies, attended the screening of the German film 'Young Goethe in Love' and enjoyed the topsy-turvy love-story of the famed
German writer, which went on to form the subject-matter of his first book which became a hit as 'The Sorrows of Young Werther'.
German pretzels, sausages, cakes, provided by the German Embassy, were also much-enjoyed, not to forget some great German beers and Riesling wine. A good way to celebrate Germany's OctoberFest.
