Bangkok police shut down film set in Khaosan Road

Pattaya One News reports that Khaosan Road in Bangkok looked a little different Wednesday. Women were showing a lot more skin beneath the glow of Japanese and Chinese signs featuring titillating images and stalls were selling lingerie and sex toys. The problem with this dystopian scene, a sci-fi trope since Blade Runner, was that the foreign production company behind it told the police it would not be identified as Thailand. In addition to having their set demolished, the filmmakers today were charged with three offenses including public indecency for misrepresenting their sexy market scene. Police said the production had been approved on the condition it would not “damage” the country’s reputation, according to Col. Pitak Sutthikul, chief of Chana Songkram police.
Pitak said the production team said their movie had nothing to do with Thailand and was in fact set in another country.
“That’s what we knew and we approved it,” Pitak said by phone Thursday. “I went to the scene, and to me, it wasn’t right. I had to order it canceled. I blame the lack of communication and understanding [between the film company and authorities]”
Members of the production company were charged with disobeying the authorities, public indecency and blocking public walkways.
Pitak declined to name the company or say where they were from.
However, when the set was erected Wednesday, a representative of the Khaosan Road Business Association filed a complaint with police against the production company for “destroying” the area’s image.

Khaosan Road is an internationally known destination for backpackers and other budget travelers.
