Thailand has submitted Nithiwat Tharatorn’s romantic drama Teacher’s Diary (Khid Thueng Withaya) as its candidate for the best foreign-language film honor at the 2015 Oscars, the National Federation of Thai Film Associations, which makes the selection, said Monday.
The movie from Thai studio GTH grossed more than $3 million, ranking second in Thailand this year. It was released in March. Thailand becomes the latest Asian country to announce its Oscar contender.
The film tells of two lonely teachers, a woman and a man, who are posted to the same rural school a year apart.
Thailand has been submitting movies to the category on and off since 1985, but has yet to make the shortlist of nominees. Independent movies this year dominated its national film awards.
