The Thai Film Archive and UNESCO will cooperate to hold a film screening in Bangkok on the occasion of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, 27 October, 2016.
The Thai Film Archive will present the classic ‘Santi-Vina’ from 1954. Once considered lost forever, original material was recently found and carefully restored. The result was shown in Cannes Classics in 2016.

UNESCO will present ‘Memory of the World: An Audio-Visual Journey’, a chronological sampling of audio, radio, film and television inscriptions on the International UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
