THE FILMS OF WACHARA GUNHA, HIS GROUP, AND HIS FRIENDS (partial list)

Filed under: Uncategorized — celinejulie @ 12:12 am

Wachara Gunha, his group (The Underground Office), and his friends made many films which were shown in the Marathon Festival this year. A friend told me he likes one of Wachara’s films very much, but can’t remember its title and asked me which film it is. In order to answer my friend’s question, I think I should make the list below and share it with everyone:

1.RESIST (Teerani Siangsanoh, 54 min)
RESIST (ธีรนิติ์ เสียงเสนาะ)

2.RUNNING (Wachara Gunha, 3 min)
กระต่ายในดวงจันทร์ (วชร กัณหา)

3.HUNTER THE BAG (Wachara Gunha + Thani Thitiprawat, 17 min)

ก้าวแรกสู่ความฝัน (อดิศักดิ์ เหมือนมิ่ง)

5.RED MOVIE (2010, The Underground Office, 30 min)

เฟื่อง (ธีรนิติ์ เสียงเสนาะ, วชร กัณหา, ธนิ ฐิติประวัติ)

13.BLACK AND WHITE (Wachara Gunha, 12 min)
มนุษยธรรม (วชร กัณหา)

14.FIRST LOVE FIRST LAST (Wachara Gunha, 14 min)
รักเธอครั้งแรกรักเขาครั้งสุดท้าย (วชร กัณหา)

15.1BY1 (Thanachit Mungkunkamchaw, 10 min)
ลากเชือด (ธนชิต มุงคุณคำชาว)
Thanachit also directed ROOMS OF LIFE (ห้องชีวิต) (2008, 13 min).

16.TO WALK NIGHT (Thani Thitiprawat, 25 min)
วันวิปริต ไร้เงาดวงจันทร์ (ธนิ ฐิติประวัติ)

17.CLOSER (Wachara Gunha + Wisit Saonoy, 17 min)
สุดถวิลหา (วชร กัณหา, วิศิษฐ์ เสาว์น้อย)

18.DISAPPEAR (Thani Thitiprawat, 26 min)
อำพราง (ธนิ ฐิติประวัติ)
Wachara is not involved in this film, though his name appears in the thanking section in the ending credit.

This is a partial list, not a complete list, because Wachara made some other films which are too old to be submitted to the Marathon Festival this year. There may be 4-5 films directed by Wachara which are not in this list, including his first film made about four years ago for the Alzheimer project (if I remember it correctly).

Thank very much to Dhan Lhaow and Killpid Prodry for helping Graiwoot and me to meet Wachara on Tuesday.

Thank to the Thai Film Foundation for showing all the films above. I regret it very much that I didn’t have a chance to see RESIST.

From all the 17 films I saw above, my most favorite ones may be FUENG, DARK SLEEP, RED MOVIE, THE JUDGE, and DISAPPEAR.

  1. This is my reply to friends in Facebook:

    –At first I believed that RED MOVIE was directed by Manussak Dokmai, because many things in RED MOVIE remind me of Manussak. But when Graiwoot saw LAST OF THAILAND (ความทรงจำของเศษดาว), he said that LAST OF THAILAND was shot by the same camera as RED MOVIE. After that, I saw FUENG, and it makes me believe that it was shot by the same people as RED MOVIE, because there’s a scene in FUENG in which the camera keeps zooming in and out without reason. Later, I met Wachara and asked him about this, and he confirmed that RED MOVIE is made by him and his friends.🙂

    –Wachara may be the person who is involved in the highest number of films in the Marathon Festival this year, because the Plittapolkarnpim family submitted only 14 films this year. In 2009, the Plittapolkarnpim family submitted about 22 films.

    In 2007, Wirat Yangyuen submitted about 12 films. I saw some of them. They are experimental films. Wirat Yangyuen’s films include:

    1.2520
    2.LIFE (ชีวิต)
    3.DB (ดีบี)
    4.EFFECTS (ตีหนึ่งสี่สิบห้าโลกสร้างสมดุล)
    5.IN CAR (ในรถ)
    6.TRANSFORM (เปลี่ยน)
    7.ENERGY (พลังงาน)
    8.LONG TIME (แสนนาน)
    9.ONE MAN (หนึ่งคน)
    10.1P (หนึ่งรูป)
    11.MY ROOM ALONE (ห้อง)
    12.HUA HIN (หัวหินสยิวกิ้ว)
