Preah Vihear documentary banned

Censors have banned a new documentary on Thai-Cambodian border conflicts, claiming the film is misleading and would disrupt public order.
The five-member censorship panel said the Thai-produced film could "persuade viewers to falsely believe" incorrect information, and was a threat to national security and international relations.
The film, Fah Tam Pan Din Soong, or Boundary, was directed by Nontawat Numbenchapol. It recounts the journey of a private who took part in the 2010 crackdown on the red shirts before returning home to Si Sa Ket.

The film then shifts to a discussion about border spats between Thailand and Cambodia, featuring several interviews with residents on both sides.
The film also includes YouTube footage of Thai soldiers in action during a border skirmish in 2011, a survey of damage from Cambodian shellings, and a long monologue from a Cambodian soldier who criticises Thailand.
The film, shot over two years with support from the Asian Cinema Fund in South Korea, ends with peaceful images of the Preah Vihear temple.
It was financially supported by Arts Network Asia and DMZ Fund from Asian Network of Documentary, Busan International Film Festival.
The Berlinale Festival has already shown at its February event.
Nontawat is a 30-year-old native of Bangkok. He graduated from the fine arts faculty of Rungsit University.
"I made the film because I wanted to look at issues confronting our society, from the red-shirt and yellow-shirt problems to the Preah Vihear issue," Nontawat said.
In an interview with the British-based internet magazine last year, Nontawat described the documentary in greater detail:
"The film ... is about the Thailand-Cambodia border conflict. The people who live around that border, their cultures and lifestyles mingle, until there is no real line to separate their nations, there is only the border on the map, and the conflict caused from a few rulers that affects about 100,000 people living there."
The censorship committee, which is attached to the Ministry of Culture, objected to many "groundless" points in the film.
One concern is a caption explaining that there were "nearly 100 deaths" during the red-shirt crackdown at Ratchaprasong on May 2010. The official figure is 89.
The panel was also concerned by comments made by the Cambodian soldier when he discussed border demarcation.
