Citizen Juling
An idealistic Buddhist art teacher is gang-beaten by Muslim housewives in the troubled south of Thailand.

Colourful human rights activist Kraisak Choonhavan tries to understand what happened and why.

Definitely not a straight documentary, but a long, strange trip into Thailand's soul with some seriously bizarre scenes, from street celebrations on the King's 60th Coronation Day to the carnival-like military coup d'etat that ends the film.

Don't miss your chance to Meet the Director on Sunday 30 March.
