Banned movie gets cremated in public
A director has staged a mock funeral of a recently banned film, complete with a mournful speech about the deceased and guests placing sandalwood flowers at a miniature crematorium.
"At first I thought it would be a fun event," said Tanwarin Sukkapisit about the satirical funeral. "But it turned out to be really sad because I've been working on the film for two years. It was like raising a baby and now the baby is gone."
Insect in the Backyard was banned by the ratings committee two weeks ago for being against public morals.
The film tells the story of a cross-dressing father, played by katoey Tanwarin, and his dysfunctional family. It has a masturbation scene and scenes of students engaged in prostitution.

The 20-metre pool is Australia's last remaining coastal baths for women and children only and is listed with the National Trust.
