520    One of the fastest growing and most internationally 
       renowned cinemas in Southeast Asia is that of Thailand. In
       the first ever book devoted solely to this major centre of
       creative filmmaking, experts on contemporary and historic 
       Thai film provide a timely overview and discussion of key 
       films, directors and current movements in the region in a 
       comprehensive encyclopaedia format. What many critics, 
       analysts and scholars have retrospectively christened "New
       Thai Cinema" began to take shape in the late 1990s when 
       national film moved away from its position as lower-class 
       and provincial entertainment and became a firm fixture in 
       Bangkok multiplexes and festivals worldwide. This book 
       will provide information on the influential figures behind
       the films--up to and succeeding the 197 watershed film 
       Dang Bireley's and Young Gangsters that began the 
       breakaway movement--as well as detailing and explaining 
       the traditions of popular and arthouse genres specific to 
       Thailand. Featuring contributions on Thai visionaries such
       as Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Wisit Sasanatieng and 
       providing rare insight into early Thai cinema, this is an 
       essential scholarly guide to a vibrant aspect of Southeast
       Asian cinema--its history, industry and aesthetic trends--
       for scholars and students alike--back cover
