ProLab: A Filmmaking Workshop with Pen-ek Ratanaruang

Delve into the art of filmmaking with one of Thailand's most talented and progressive filmmakers, Pen-ek Ratanaruang.

This workshop will focus on the practical and conceptual side of filmmaking, drawing from the director's vast experience. Using his own films as a canvas for discussion, the director will go into detail of how he translates scripts to film reality, making difficult creative decisions and how he has moved into the international arena in both production and audiences. Participants can expect intimate discussions with the director.

Participants are strongly encouraged to watch the films of the director to be able to participate in the discussion. The Retrospective on Pen-ek Ratanaruang screens from 11 - 12 Sept at the Singapore History Museum.
