This years edition of the Toronto Film Festival came to an end for me today with the chance to sit and interview Wisit Sasanatieng, the visually astounding director of Thai cult hit Tears of the Black Tiger, about his latest film Citizen Dog. Once again, the written transcript will follow once I have the time to transcribe the building stack of interviews here, but in the meantime here's the raw audio file for your listening pleasure. Wisit speaks very softly, though, so you'll need to crank it up. Again, the file is encoded as a self-playing executable.

Why is an audio file an executable? Can't you make it an MP3 instead? Thanks for the work!

Great interview. Very insightful questions. I hadn't realized he was having to supplement his filmmaking career by continuing to make commercials.

there's an UK DVD out by Pathe. Just the film, but it's OK. OAR, 16:9, decent subs. This is the International version, though.

My voice recorder uses some proprietary format that I can't convert to mp3s ... that would've been my preference if possible ...

nevermind, I didn't see the comment above that one

Personally, I'm perversely curious to see the Miramax cut of Tears ... don't think it got caught on tape but we talked for a while after the tape stopped and Wisit mentioned that Miramax made further cuts after the International cut to give it a happy ending. Nobody dies. Seriously.

When the original version comes out, for those locals who may be interested, i can do a back-to-back screening of both DVDs on my home theatre...should be grounds for some ripe discussion amoungst Wisit Sasanatieng fans.

Can anybody tell me where I can find the soundtrack or music (name) of band that played at the end of the film from Wisit Sasanatieng "Mah Nakorn-Citizen Dog"?

Does anybody have info on an upcoming release of an english-subbed DVD of Citizen Dog?
