“The Cave” to be released in Thailand on November 28

A film about the massive rescue of the 12 boys and their coach trapped in Tham Luang caves in Chiang Rai in 2018 is going to be screened in cinemas later this year.

The world followed the dramatic rescue of the 12 boys and their coach from a cave in Chiang Rai in 2018. A little over a year later, the film about the rescue titled “The Cave” or “Nang Non” will be screened in Major Cineplex as well as SF Cinemas in the country on November 28.

Director Tom Waller disclosed that he wasn’t allowed to have contact with the boys of the Wild Boar soccer team while making the “The Cave.” Therefore, the story focuses entirely on the rescue and the rescuers instead. “It’s told from the point of view of unsung heroes, people not in the news,” Director Waller said.

A one-minute trailer of the film was released on Wednesday.

The film which will be first screened at the London Film Festival before it hit Thai theaters on November 28, will relive the moment when the brave rescuers put their lives on the line to save the young boys. “I feel like it’s an important story,” the Thai-Irish Waller said.

A Netflix series surrounding the dramatic rescue of the boys from June to July of 2018 is also in the works.
