Village People Radio Show 

$23.00

Director: Amir Muhammad

Village People Radio Show is a portrait of village life in South Thailand, home of retired Malay-Muslim members of the Communist Party of Malaya. After a decade of guerilla war, the former members of the Communist Party of Malaysia (CPM) retreated into the South of Thailand in the mid-1950s. Despite their fight for the country’s independence, much was made of the fact that the 10th Regiment party was predominantly Chinese who adopted an atheistic philosophy. Recollections of the decades-long guerrilla war are interspersed with a Thai radio soap opera.
