2011, De Warrenne Pictures, 90 min., Thailand.  In the tradition of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot and “The Name Of The Rose,” Thai director Tom Waller’s brain-teasing murder mystery is set inside a Buddhist monastery in Bangkok plagued by series of unexplained deaths.  Former policeman turned monk Father Ananda (Vithaya Pansringarm, in a quiet, moving performance) is assigned to untangle the web of lies behind the grisly killing of a homeless “temple boy” – and at the same time, finds himself becoming a surrogate father to an orphan named Jak.  Adapted from author Nick Wilgus’s acclaimed “Father Ananda” murder mystery series.  (Los Angeles Premiere.  In Thai with English subtitles.)   

Discussion following with director Tom Waller.
