Thailand’s ‘Concrete Clouds’ Forecast for U.K. Release

Indie distributor Day For Night will give a U.K. outing to its fourth Thai acquisition

UDINE – Upstart indie distributor Day For Night will give a U.K. release to “Concrete Clouds,” a Thai drama that has been a favourite on the international festival circuit.

“Clouds” is the feature directing debut of well-known editor Lee Chatametikool. It premiered at the Busan festival in October and feature in competition in Rotterdam in January. Sales are handled by new Bangkok-based sales agency Mosquito Films.

“There is something incredibly vibrant and fresh within Thai film-making today and we are delighted to be continuing our commitment to Thai independent cinema in bringing this outstanding film to UK audiences,” said Sonashi Joshi of Day For Night.

The company, which works across distribution and screen translation sectors, launched its distribution arm in 2013 with the release of Aditya Assarat’s “Hi-So.” It will next be releasing Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit’s first two features “36” and “Mary Is Happy, Mary Is Happy” this year.

Concrete Clouds” is set against the backdrop of Thailand’s financial crisis of 1997 and a once ever-changing Bangkok brought to a standstill. The action follows four central characters – two brothers, and their two former girlfriends. The two relationships, complicated by time, circumstance and memory are played out against a soundtrack of 1990s Thai pop, music videos and recorded memories.

The film is a Vertical Films production and was co-produced by Soros Sukhum, Anocha Suwichakornpong and Sylvia Chang.
