PRESENTATION & SYNOPSIS

PRESENTATION
 
The Iron Red Door is that passage were the bodies of executed prisoners get out from the infamous Thai prison “Bang Kwang”. Every time that door opens a new human being has been killed. It is not important if he was innocent or guilty. It is doesn’t matter if it is a poor western immigrant doing art in an Asian metropolis. They want just to be sure to kill someone.
 
SYNOPSIS
 
It is the day before the execution of PIETRO, an Italian artist accused of the murder of a mysterious Thai woman, RAK. PIETRO and his wife NEE who are trying to survive in Bangkok producing artistic theatre plays, met RAK during one of their shows. RAK discovered the beauty of theatre and decided to leave her bright future and family to become an actor. But her happy free life is very short: during a performance in a boat, the Thai girl disappears dramatically. PIETRO became the easy scapegoat and he is condemned to death. ROLAND, whom PIETRO knows a little, is visiting PIETRO in prison. The condemnation to death doesn’t convince ROLAND who decides to spend the last 24 hours with PIETRO to find the truth. The whole story becomes a long poetic narration between the present grey of the cell and the colourful flashbacks of the past, a long travel among modernity and ancient times, fights for power, fight for freedom, death, theatre and dangerous events in a fascinating dangerous town.
