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.
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.
