Dear Nannue Tipitier
It is with pleasure that we invite you to attend BERLINALE TALENTS from February 22-27, 2020. You were selected from over 3.400 applicants from 134 countries.
Our selection committee has considered your application thoroughly and wants to share the following comment with you:
Sometimes when you watch a film you cannot distinguish anymore between your senses. Do you hear with your eyes, or see with your ears? We had that feeling while watching, but mostly listening, to your composition for Soil Without Land. It is wonderful to listen to aural equivalents for slow motion and out of focus. We hope you will have a good time at Berlinale Talents, discussing the meeting grounds between image and sound with other talents
I would like to thank the following people for helping me with the submission and work sample process. Without these people, the possibility would diminish into thin air.
Mr Nontawat Numbenchapol, the founder of Mobile Lab.
Mr Jate Saitthiti, the founder of Suffix
Dr Maren Niemeyer, Director of Goethe-Institut Thailand

The Democracy Monument serves to commemorate the 1932 coup which resulted in Siam’s first constitution and the end of absolute monarchy. As with so many of Bangkok’s significant buildings, it was designed by an Italian - Corrado Feroci.
The monument is the main focal point of the grand European-style Ratchadamnoen Klang boulevard, and its four wings symbolize the Thai armed forces, while golden offering bowls represent the constitution itself. While most of the time, the monument is surrounded by busy traffic, the monument has remained an important site for political uprisings to rally around since it was built in 1932.
