Limitless Cinema in Broken English

HOPE (2008, Siwadol Ratee, A+++++)

I went to see 2008: VERY SHORT NEW YEAR CINE-BRATION yesterday. This event shows 29 Thai short films. Each of them is about 3-minute long. I like this event very much, though there might not be a real great film in this event. I think most of the films in this event are not highly ambitious. So watching these films makes me feel like having a casual talk with many people, instead of feeling like listening to someone making a presentation or making a report about some serious topics in front of the class. The latter kind of feeling is the feeling I get when I watch some films in the Thai short film competition.

These are the list of films:
