For this episode, Charles and Samm were joined by dear friend Phil Jablon, an author, photographer, and researcher who first made a name for himself photographing and documenting historic movie theaters in Thailand. He also collects and sells Thai movie posters — enabling our growing addiction to them — and we talked to him about everything from life in Thailand, his journey exploring old theaters and preserving movie posters, to some of our favorite Thai films.
You can find Phil (and lots of Thai posters) on Instagram at @thai_poster_bliss. His first book, Thailand’s Movie Theatres: Relics, Ruins and the Romance of Escape, is available online and I’ll be sure to link to pre-orders for his new book on Thai movie posters when that becomes available!
As always, this will be live on the Cinepunx network as well as Apple and Spotify later in the week, so please like, rate, share, review, send us angry letters, your favorite human flesh recipes, etc. Thank you for all your support!
