A year-long preparation gets underway for the funeral of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. It involves soldiers pulling a 222-year-old chariot, a slow march by Brahmin priests and members of the royal family, and craftsmen working to create a crematorium to depict the sacred Mt Meru. FOR THE KING tracks these individuals over the course of this preparation for Thailand’s grandest royal funeral yet.
