An exhibition by Sittichai Jittatad about those on the frontline combating Thailand's human trafficking problem.

instead chose to follow his passion for documentary photography. His documentary images has been published in the Thai edition

'TANG WONG' (Thailand)
Thai film 'TANG WONG', which won a spate of National Awards last year, had a full house for its screening in the FCCT. This
was the last film of the year in the 'Contemporary World Film Series'.
The audience included academics, students, professionals, and many movie-buffs who were very interested to know more about
Thai cinema. Their questions were answered, at the Q & A after the screening, by the well-known producer of the film Soros
Sukhum, and newcomer actor Nutthasit Kotimanuswanich. The chat-session was moderated by Fcct Board-member Jinda Wedel.
There were also great red and white Thai wines from the Village Farm and Winery, Khao Yai. All in all, it was a great end to
yet another year of varied and exciting cinema from around the world, with the kind support of many Embassies,
film-companies, and food/drink outlets.

One of the most high-profile events at the Club recently, was the screening of an outstanding but rarely-seen docu-film:
'Sila Lidskosti, The Power of Good', about an incredible, still-alive, 105-year-old British individual, Nicholas Winton, who
rescued from the Nazi camps, numerous Czech Jewish children, many of whom are well-known personalities today.
The screening was organised by the Czech Embassy, in conjunction with the Embassies of Britain and Israel.
The event was attended by several Ambassadors, Cultural Attaches, corporate heads, NGOs and academics, all of whom were
deeply moved and inspired by the movie.
