According to an article in the Bangkok Post ‘it was Siamese Suite that put Prasidh at the forefront of composers of his time.’ What makes it even more interesting is that the seminal work debuted in Manila. It was the National Symphony Orchestra of the Philippines who had the honor of playing it for the first time and was recorded for Thai audiences back home. The debut was because of an invitation to Prasidh to participate in a UNESCO Music conference held here in 1954.

For his success in slapstick Saito was called ‘God of Comedy’.

Yasojiro Ozu is considered not just one of the best directors from the silent era but of all time. Ozu’s TOKYO STORY has appeared several times in the Sight & Sound poll of best films selected by critics and directors. In 2012, it topped the poll of film directors’ choices of “greatest film of all time”.

Ozu is almost like a Van Gogh–like figure whose work was appreciated and recognized only after he had passed away. According to wikipedia: at age 13 used to skip classes to watch screenings like QUO VADIS! and THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII by Mario Casreini.

Incidentally, the Italian film exhibition for this year’s silent film fest is THE LAST DAYS OF POMPEII with The Dawn providing the live soundtrack. In the same bio, Ozu at age 17 was kicked out of a dormitory for writing a love letter to a boy. Throughout his life he struggled against some sort of prejudice, was conscripted to becoming a soldier. He passed away at 63 and was buried beside his mother with the epitaph, “Nothingness”.
