Based on the story by Senior Statesman Pridi Banomyong, The King of the White Elephant is one of the most historically significant films in Thai history and this year celebrates its 60th anniversary. Pridi was also responsible for producing the classic tale of good vs. evil. King Chakra of Ayodaya is being urged to take a wife for each day of the year by some of his subjects, but he is not interested in these type of games. What concerns him is the well being of his people, and instead he requests a herd of elephants. Amongst the elephants that are rounded up is a beautiful white elephant, the symbol of a great King. When the King of Honsa acts aggressively along the borders of Chakra’s kingdom, he returns the aggression, but is disturbed by the deaths of the common people of both kingdoms. King Chakra demonstrates his great thinking by proposing a battle between the two Kings, and instead a battle for territory, it is a battle for peace.
