Apichatpong Weerasethakuls next film Intimacy and Turbulence will be co-financed by Vienna-organized New Crowned Hope festival as a part of the programs to celebrate the birth of Mozart, 250 th Anniversary in Vienna next year.

Intimacy and Turbulence is one of the six films to be sponsored by the city of Vienna under the $3 million budget. Besides Apichatphong, other international auteurs include Tsai Ming Liang from Taiwan (What Time Is It There?), Mahamat Saleh Haroun from Chad (Abouna), Garin Nugroho from Indonesia, Bahman Ghobadi from Iran (Turtles Can Fly), and first-time filmmaker from Paraguay Paz Encina.

The six movies do not need to have direct connection with Mozart, or use his music. But they are intended to amplify his fundamental artistic themes in a 21st century context. The project is supervised by Simon Field and Keith Griffiths of London-based company Illuminations Films (Variety). Simon Field was the former director of Rotterdam International Film Festival which supported Apichatpongs first feature Mysterious Object at Noon.

Intimacy and Turbulence is a memoir the director is dedicated to his parents who are doctors living in the northeastern part of Thailand. It is in a scripting process and expected to be finished at the end of 2006.

Recently, Apichatpong has finished two shorts Worldly Desires and Ghost of Asia. Worldly Desires was sponsored by the Jeonju International Film Festival under Digital Short Films Three filmmakers omnibus project, and premiered in April. Ghost of Asia is one of 14 ten-minute digital short film based on Tsunami catastrophe that hit the south of Thailand at the end of last year. The project is supported by Thailand s Office of Contemporary Arts and Culture. Apichatphong chose to tell the story about the pure, unpolished imagination of young kids who live by the beach. All of the shorts will be shown at World Film Festival in Bangkok in October.
