    » Jenjira Pongpas has no clue what Blissfully Yours, the 2002 Cannes Film Festival's Un Certain Regard prize-winning film by director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, is all about.

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 10/08/2015

Women are no longer under some ring of patriarchal oppression and they contemptuously shun haute couture dresses bedecked with phoenix and dragon embroidery. This is a new and brave China we are talking about -- they are not just crazy rich -- they are China Rich, as Kevin Kwan's second book title aptly coins it.
