Contemporary World Film Series: SEPTEMBER - The Silent Cry

Date:

29 June 2024

We are delighted to resume the popular Contemporary World Film Series at TK Park, this year.

Our Opening Film is from the lush and beautiful Central American country of Guatemala. This is the first film from the country to be screened in Thailand.

Directed by the country’s most renowned film-maker Kenneth Mueller, the story is a powerful exploration of love, resilience, and the human spirit.

September opens on a shocking-note with a bomb explosion by terrorists in a bus carrying innocent people. The bomb kills a lovely mother carrying a baby, and the baby becomes deaf.

The bomb-explosion refers to a notorious bomb-explosion by army guerrillas in Guatemala, on 5 September 1980 (hence, the title).

The incident affected the Director’s life personally, because his mother and brother were on the ill-fated bus. His mother was not killed, but his brother became deaf.

In the film, the baby daughter Theresa is brought up by her father, and the two face many challenges. She grows into a lovely girl, falls in love, but politics is a blockade.

The lead-role is played by a brilliant actor who has starred in many films of the region, supported by a very talented actress (she prepared for her role by interacting with the Director’s deaf brother.)

The screening of September is supported by the Embassy of Guatemala in Bangkok, who will serve an array of local snacks and drinks.

The Ambassador of the Republic of Guatemala H.E. Ms. Shirley Dennise Aguilar Barrera, will introduce the film.
