Culture Ministry aims to set up committee for ‘Wild Boars’ movie

Recommended Posts

Movie will make no money. A very short sit on a ledge no English and boring film. Sorry but this is for Thais. I would not pay to see it

Well here's the thing, they said that they need to focus on securing caves around the nation, and making things more safe for Thais and tourists. Where is the money and effort being put into those statements? I don't know, do you? Instead, we hear that money and effort is going to be put into a movie however

Which is not needed (movie) when there are already a couple of well prepared and accurate doco's available.

I agree with you, DM07 - agree with you very much.

 

I particularly liked your comment about a certain inspiring portrait getting the boys through and about the Thai film flashing brief glimpses of the English/Australian/ other Western divers, but then giving a huge, protracted focus on the Thai Navy Seals, and the arrival of our wonderful Leader. And we will all learn that what we had previously thought of as barely enough to live on (in terms of food, oxygen), etc, is actually sufficient - more than enough, as the boys have proven ...

    Oh, yes - it will be an exercise in jingoism, superstition, and foolish nationalism if the military junta have any real control over the project  - depend upon it.

 

Oh! Yea of little faith, just shows you don't really understand Thainess and that ?? is different ?

I wonder if the escape included any diving.

 

Someone said most of the rescue mission credit went to the team pumping out all the water and that by the time the kids got rescued all the caves were walkable.

 

Ofcourse the media is not telling us this because that would reduce the drama.

I see them saying they want to get some control over who does it and how it is done.. I don't see anywhere that they are planning to put money into it.  Do you?

The Seals (gawd luv em) are fantastic swimmers and scuba divers. They sat with the boys, doctored them and fed them.

 

Cave diving is another world. My brother (retd RN Commander and Submariner) teaches it, among the few in the world who can.

 

2 UK Cave Divers found the boys because the Thais had no clue apart from good regular scuba skills. So the Brits, Dutch and an Ozzie Medic had to organise the whole thing, which was why it took 2 weeks +. The medic even dosed the boys with a bit of Ativan to stop panic.

 

We shall now see the Seals execute and manage the whole thing, of course. The Brits will be making the tea for a 2 minute clip.

I wouldn't for one minute run down the Thai Seals, overall they did a fantastic job within their limits and probably pushed themselves beyond this at times. However, luckily cave diving experts were called in to save the day and don't see them worried in the least if the credit is placed elsewhere -  which it will be in any film with Thai involvement.

Govt gives green light to production of movie about Tham Luang mission

BANGKOK, 20th July 2018, (NNT) - The recent meeting of members of the committee responsible for films and videos in Thailand has resolved to promote the production of a film telling the story of the Tham Luang search and rescue operation, after five world leading movie studios showed interest in making a screen adaptation of the epic mission. 

The film board also resolved to propose to the cabinet next week the establishment of a national committee to ensure that the movie will accurately retell the events that occurred in Tham Luang cave, without violating the human rights of those being featured in it. The committee would also look after the privacy of the 13 youths rescued and related individuals, as well as protect the image of the Kingdom. 

According to Minister of Culture Weera Rojpojanarat, the committee has agreed that the story of the 12 boy footballers and their coach should also be told in documentary and short film forms. He stressed that there is no need for filmmakers to add more dramatic moments in the film, saying the story is fine as it is. Nonetheless, he is confident that movie studios won't distort the details of the event, as it has become a well-known story worldwide. 

Earlier the Ministry brought members of the staff of the National Archive to record a full account of the mission, which filmmakers can refer to. 

Meanwhile, Director-General of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, Thanya Nethithammakul has indicated that the search and rescue mission inside Tham Luang cave is a valuable lesson for all related officials. He said his agency is stepping up safety measures in the venues under the care of his department. Director-General Thanya said from now on all tourists going inside a cave must registered their names and security guards will be stationed at caves around the clock to provide assistance. He indicated that there will be other measures to prevent a similar event from ocurring in the case where deploying 24-hour security guards is not viable. 

Furthermore, Thanya said tourists will be informed about what to do and what not to do inside a cave, while adding that warning signs will also be erected in various dangerous spots.

He also said that his department is working with the Meteorological Department to determine a schedule for closure of the cave to ensure the safety of tourists during the rainy season. Previously the officials had set the closing period from the beginning of July to the end of August.
