From Camerado on Youtube - ASIA TRAVEL: Loi Krathong Festival in Bangkok Thailand with Crocodile (and Mr. J)



ASIA TRAVEL: Loi Krathong Festival in Bangkok Thailand with Crocodile (and Mr. J) Subscribe @ http://ift.tt/1rF2eoC ::::: A glimpse of the Loi Krathong festival in Bangkok, Thailand, where many floating Krathong baskets and other decorative items - including an alligator shaped basket - have candles and incense added then are sent floating on a local canal or pond, etc. (From Wikipedia http://ift.tt/1cBllV1) oi Krathong takes place on the evening of the full moon of the 12th month in the traditional Thai lunar calendar. In the Western calendar this usually falls in November. According to the Royal Institute Dictionary 1999, loi (ลอย) means "to float", while krathong (กระทง) has various meanings, one of which is "a basket to be floated on water in the Loi Krathong festival".[1] Several translations of krathong are found, such as "floating crown", "floating boat", "floating decoration". The traditional krathong are made from a slice of the trunk of a banana tree or a spider lily plant. Modern krathongs are more often made of bread or styrofoam. A bread krathong will disintegrate after a few days and can be eaten by fish. Banana stalk krathong are also biodegradable, but styrofoam krathongs are sometimes banned, as they pollute the rivers and may take years to decompose. A krathong is decorated with elaborately-folded banana leaves, incense sticks, and a candle. A small coin is sometimes included as an offering to the river spirits. On the night of the full moon, Thais launch their krathong on a river, canal or a pond, making a wish as they do so. The festival may originate from an ancient ritual paying respect to the water spirits. Government offices, corporations and other organizations launch large decorated krathongs. There are competitions for the best such krathong. A beauty contest is a regular feature and fireworks have become common in recent years. Loi Krathong is often claimed to have begun in the Sukhothai by a court lady named Nopphamat. However, it is now known that the Nopphamat tale comes from a poem written in the early Bangkok period.[2] According to H.M. King Rama IV, writing in 1863, it was a Brahmanical festival that was adapted by Thai Buddhists in Thailand to honor Buddha, Prince Siddhartha Gautama. The candle venerates the Buddha with light, while the krathong's floating symbolizes letting go of all one's hatred, anger, and defilements. People sometime cut their fingernails or hair and place the clippings on the krathong as a symbol of letting go of past transgressions and negative thoughts. Many ordinary Thai use the krathong to thank the Goddess of Water, Phra Mae Khongkha (Thai: พระแม่คงคา). The beauty contests that accompany the festival are known as "Nopphamat Queen Contests". According to legend, Nang Nopphamat (Thai: นางนพมาศ; alternatively spelled as "Noppamas" or "Nopamas") was a consort of the 13th century Sukhothai king Sri Indraditya (who is also known as Phra Ruang) and she had been the first to float a decorated raft.[3] However, this is a new story which was invented during the first part of the 19th century. There is no evidence that a Nang Nopphamat ever existed. Instead, it is a matter of fact that a woman of this name was the leading character of a novel released at the end of the reign of King Rama III, around 1850 CE. Her character was written as guidance for all women who wished to become civil servants. Kelantan in Malaysia celebrates Loi Krathong similarly, especially in the Tumpat area. The ministry in charge of tourism in Malaysia recognises it as an attraction for tourists. Many people visit the celebration each year.

Sidewalk Screenings in Cambodia: Supernatural Asian (Cambodia) Movie, FREEDOM DEAL


Camerado's original supernatural Asian historical dramatic movie, FREEDOM DEAL: The Story of Lucky, set along the Cambodia-Vietnam border in 1970 during the Vietnam conflict, continues to enjoy popular support and appreciation internationally - and on the ground in Cambodia in well.

A series of October 2014 sidewalk and street screenings in Phnom Penh and in the rural Cambodian countryside, demonstrated conclusively a striking level of popular local support for this pioneering onscreen supernatural historical drama.

FREEDOM DEAL J "Jack RO" Rosette in Cambodia, Oct 2014 

Utilizing a network of volunteers operating battery powered Pico projections systems, and supported by two Beta-stage, CUDA accelerated PILGRIM media player systems (*designed by J "Jack RO" Rosette, director of CAMERADO and co-producer of FREEDOM DEAL - read more HERE), the successful October 2014 Cambodia screenings of FREEDOM DEAL conclusively demonstrated that the movie exhibits strong international crossover potential - bridging the gap between a local populist Asian sensibility and an international and Western moviegoing experience.









FREEDOM DEAL: The Story of Lucky, is based on a section of the expanded FREEDOM DEAL feature and episodic project currently in development. Following over half a decade of research in Cambodia, where writer-director J "Jack RO" Rosette lived and worked between 2005 and 2013, the FREEDOM DEAL story takes place at a critical juncture of Western-Asian history, during the little explored 1970 'Cambodia Incursion'. 



This military operation, launched jointly by US and Army of South Vietnam forces, drove into Cambodia to seek and destroy hidden North Vietnamese and Viet Cong sanctuaries.

The Cambodia Incursion was widely considered to be a military success, in that it effectively reduced rearguard and flank activity on forces planning to depart Vietnam while providing the beleaguered Cambodian Lon Nol regime a ready supply of (captured) weapons.  However, the operation was a political disaster for the Nixon administration which had previously articulated a plan to exit the Indochina conflict via a process of 'Vietnamization'.  




In response to the Cambodian Incursion, protests erupted across the USA, culminating in the shooting deaths of students at Kent State and Jackson State Universities.



Yet....what was happening on the ground in Cambodia?  What was the local Asian experience during this time?

For the first time ever onscreen, this pivotal moment in history is dramatized in FREEDOM DEAL from a local Cambodian point of view. The movie also features a supernatural folkloric twist, in the form of startling appearance of a spectral, vampiric floating head being known as an 'ARB' - appearing for the first time ever in a movie intended for international audiences.

Internationally, FREEDOM DEAL: Story of Lucky continues to ply the festival circuit, captivating many who know little about the 20th century conflicts in Indochina; a programmer at the USA based Highway 61 Film Festival sums up the reaction of many Westerners who encounter the FREEDOM DEAL project for the first time:


"A strong, interesting story with good characters and excellent acting. And the supernatural element was bizarre but just right for the story" - Highway 61 Film Festival
