  • Director Yuthlert Sippapak Gets Political on His New Film 'Fatherland'

It may surprise some to learn that Yuthlert Sippapak, the fun-loving director who shot to fame with action comedy Killer Tattoo (2001) before moving on to the horror-comedy series Buppah Rahtree (2003, 2005, 2009 and 2010), is turning his attention to the more serious issues of religion and politics with his latest film. Post-production has just finished on Fatherland which follows the political instability in the three southern-most provinces of Thailand through the eyes of two soldiers deployed there (big names Wier Sukollawat and Ananda Everingham). The film is tentatively scheduled to be in cinemas at the end of this year to celebrate the Father’s Day. You can watch the trailer at
