Title of Project: Global Versus Local: The Transformation of Thai Cinema

Inspiration Behind the Project:

Today is an era of Globalization which the culture from one country can go worldwide rapidly. It is an invasion of the culture which the culture from strong nation can push back the boundary of local culture in particular countries and place itself as a local custom. This causes a losing of identity of origin.

Thus, my thesis paper will explain how the global custom effect the local custom. Especially how it effects a Thai cinema industry since the first era of Thai cinema has been influenced by the foreign countries and How Thai cinema adjusts itself to the Globalization.
