My Teacher Eats Biscuits
Ing K
1996 | 120 min | Colour | 16mm

"A John Waters-inspired no-budget independent movie starring friends of the director and filmed on 16mm, My Teacher Eats Biscuits is a savage and irreverent satire of religious beliefs, tailored to Thai audiences but with wider and indeed universal resonance. In the role of the arch villain: a sacred dog worshipped as His Holiness in a New Age ashram. Banned for 'depravity'in 1998 under a Democrat government, this film will be projected from the only existing 16mm print." – Nikolaus Perneczky
