Watch “The Last Executioner” at Neilson Hays Library on 26 February

Film Night - The Last Executioner

Inspired by true events, The Last Executioner is the story of Chavoret Jaruboon, the last person in Thailand whose job it was to execute by gun. A wild rock and roller who took a ‘respectable’ job to support the family he loved devotedly, then constantly tried to reconcile the good and bad karma that came from his decision. It is a story of life at its most beautiful and death at its most surreal.

Film Night - The Last Executioner

One of the scenes in the movie was filmed at the Neilson Hays Library in Bangkok. Which is rather fitting as there will be a special screening in the library on Thursday 26th February from 7 p.m. This will be followed by a Q&A session with the film’s director, Tom Waller, screenwriter Don Linder and award-winning lead actor Vithaya Pansringarm. A signed copy of the screenplay will be a raffle prize on the night.

Tickets: 300 Baht members/students; 400 Baht non-members.

    Thanks for letting us know about this movie showing.

    I had the honour of meeting Chavoret a few years ago, smashing man and we had a great deal in common.
