A new documentary, Enter The RED Shirts, by Aphiwat Saengphatthaseema explores the red shirt movement in Thailand. An eight minute preview of the documentary is available on Vimeo and embedded above. Sulak Sivaraksa is among the people interviewed in the documentary.
In the description of the video Aphiwat writes:
For over seven years, from 2004- 2010, I documented and witnessed the red shirt’s political struggle on Rajadamneon Road, the road famous for having been hosted Thai political contexts etched on it for a long period of time. The road is also a landmark of political symbol, where it hosted many political struggles and egalitarianism between the people, on one hand, and the state on the other. The data and footage collection sprang from my personal interests to document historical events, without event knowing what the future would bring or if there would be the “red shirts” entering the scene on the political struggling on the road in Thailand.
Perhaps the documentary may help answer some of the important questions asked by Andrew Marshall in his recent report about the April-May 2010 protests.
