    Chavoret: The Last Executioner

    CHAVORET: THE LAST EXECUTIONER


    A story of one ordinary man’s journey through life, death and karma.

    CHAVORET: THE LAST EXECUTIONER is the story of the last person in Thailand whose job it was to execute by gun, a wild rock and roller who took a “respectable” job to support the family he loved devotedly, then constantly tried to the reconcile the good and bad karma that came from his decision. It is a story of life at its most beautiful and death at its most surreal.

    Award-winning Anglo-Thai filmmaker Tom Waller (MINDFULNESS AND MURDER) will direct the story of Thailand’s last prison executioner, Chavoret Jaruboon, who passed away in May 2012. Vithaya Pansringarm (ONLY GOD FORGIVES), will play Chavoret as an older man, whilst a younger actor will be cast as the guitar playing youth who entertained GIs during the Vietnam War, before entering the Thai prison service.

    CHAVORET: THE LAST EXECUIONER is being produced by Tom Waller and Michael Pritchett, with Somboon Vichaisre and Oscar Kahar serving as Associate Producers. The screenplay is being written by Thailand based ex-pat writer Don Linder, who interviewed the late Chavoret and sourced recollections of his life from his widowed wife, life-long friends and children. Shooting on the drama/bio-pic is expected to begin in early 2013.

    The project will reunite Pansringarm with Waller, who were both nominated for Thai National Film awards (21st Subhanahongsa Awards) earlier this year for Best Actor and Best Director respectively on their previous collaboration, the Buddhist murder mystery MINDFULNESS AND MURDER, for which they were also nominated for co-writing the screenplay.



    Waller will be attending the Asian Film Market 8-11th October 2012 along with delegates from the Federation of National Film Associations of Thailand.

    Bang Kwang Prison is one of the most notorious penal institutions in the world.

    Located seven miles north of Bangkok city in the Nonthaburi Province, the prison is home to over 8,000 inmates, among them ruthless killers, rapists, drug traffickers, conmen and thieves.

    The Bangkok Hilton is understaffed, overcrowded, and filled with inmates who struggle with insanity as they spend the first months of their sentences chained in leg irons. Prisoners outnumber guards by 50 to 1.

    Until now, the reality of life inside Bang Kwang has remained a secret.

    Chavoret Jaruboon's book is the most insightful, candid and thought-provoking book ever written about Thailand's most notorious institution. If you want to understand Bang Kwang, its guards, prisoners and its unwritten rules, you must read this book.

    I read the book.
    To my mind he dictated and was interviewed to get the work out. Not a piece of writing by him.

    Still it was good as it showed how he wanted to be a musician but he had to get a job to survive, keep a wife and family, look after the parents.

    It also dealt with the mechanics of killing and how different people faced their end.
    If you can find it second hand read it.

    For the gun nuts he used a 9mm sub machine gun in a rest. This weapon dated from the first days of their creation in the first world war/1920's and was used for something like 50+ years before replaced with a modern gun.
