    Bangkok songkran agendas

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/04/2013

    » OMB! We have five days off in a row because the cabinet kindly declared that this year's "official" Songkran break starts from today until Tuesday. Say what you will about PM Poo, but she is so right in giving us a long holiday since we can't function properly during this kind of heat anyway. Anyhoo, that's over 7,000 minutes we're supposed to wisely spend relaxing before going back to the grind on Wednesday. And even though some shops and places in Bangkok may be shut during the Thai New Year, there are plenty more options for celebrating.

    » How often is it that international LGBT films get a screening in Thailand? Not often at all, except when there's a film festival. This week, wonderfully strange as it may be, we're seeing not just one but two LGBT films on our silver screens. And the two couldn't be more different.

    Giving women a voice

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 03/03/2017

    » A robust line-up of films is coming to us in HeForShe Arts Week Bangkok Film Festival. Organised by UN Women, next week's festival has selected films with messages on gender equality -- or inequality -- and unfair treatment of women in different cultures (not just in the "Third World" countries, to be sure). It sounds heavy, but the good thing is that the titles picked for the event this year are entertaining and heartfelt on top of being socially relevant.
