Greetings from Golden Network Asia!!
We are delighted to present our three new titles in the forthcoming film festivals:

Shot on digital video and converted to 35mm, the film explores the irony of how a good deed is carried out by way of a criminal practice, and how death begets life.

The film will be in Main Competition of Venice International Film Festival.

The film received 11 awards in Surasawadee Thai Film Awards and Best Filmmaker Award in 3eme Festival du Film Asiatique de Deauville (2001). "Pic's style is closer to Kurosawa's "Seven Samurai" ... In a memorable conflict 60 minutes in, and especially in the final epic slaughter, the films takes on an elemental power and a heroic stature." - Derek Elley, Variety. It will be in "Midnight Madness" in Toronto International Film Festival.
