The Year of June
THE YEAR OF JUNE (2013)
Feature Film, HD, in development
Director: Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit
Producer: Aditya Assarat
The Year of June is a “digital adaptation” of an anonymous school girl’s yearlong Twitter stream. She deconstructs herself into hundreds of fragments and the filmmakers reconstruct them back into a narrative. The result is a fast, funny, and fantastic adventure of a school girl in the city of Bangkok.
The Year of June is a project developed by the Venice Biennale College. The philosophy of the college is to train next generation artists to produce micro-budget films. There were 15 semi-finalists out of over 400 applicants, of which three were ultimately chosen to be funded. All three will have their world premiere at the 2013 Venice Film Festival.
