We wanted to change things up a bit so this month we have a film we would like to share with you.

"Nine Days in the Kingdom" is a documentary film about 55 of the world's great photographers.

How does a photographer capture that decisive moment, find the best light and interact with his or her subjects?

To provide a unique behind-the-scenes look at the world's top photographers at work, Editions Didier Millet has teamed up with two production houses to create multiple documentaries about the 9 Days adventure.

Hopping planes, trains and boats, film crews from Bangkok-based MCOT and Paris-based NGM Production were on-hand throughout Shoot Week to capture the action. Audiences will travel with the photographers to remote locations throughout Thailand, gaining insight into both the craft of photography and the diverse culture of this modern Kingdom.

Thailand: 9 Days in the Kingdom showcases the work of 55 of the worlds leading international photographers including several from Thailand. These photographers represent an international group of talents with a range of specialties; photojournalism, wildlife, underwater, aerial, landscape, portraits, architecture and more. Taken over a period of 9 days, the images captured by these world-class photographers stand as testimony to an exciting and evolving period in Thai history.

Join us for this exciting film on:
