Bangkok--30 Mar--TQPR

Philip Jablon, the founder and principal of The Southeast Asia Movie Theater Project, is holding a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for a feature length documentary about his work photographing forgotten stand-alone movie theaters in Myanmar and Thailand. A thirty-minute, made-for-TV version of this documentary has already aired on Thai PBS in September of 2017. The feature length version will delve deeper into the circumstances that brought these important spaces into existence and, later, led to their decline.

"One Man, Stand-Alone: On the trail of the old movie theaters" will take the viewer on a journey through seldom visited towns and cities throughout Myanmar and Thailand, revealing arcane facts and colorful vistas of a building type that was once a critical part of everyday life. Part documentary, part travelogue, all cinema odyssey.

Jablon is working with an established Thai documentary director in Mr. Theerayut Weerakham to make this a polished and sophisticated rumination on an overlooked part of Southeast Asia's recent past, and to find solutions for how some of the regions old theaters might be adapted for contemporary you.

The crowdfunding platform for "One Man, Stand-Alone: On the trail of the old movie theaters" is Asiola, the first ever crowdfunding platform focused on the Asian creative market.
