    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 22/07/2016

    » Phakdi "Try" Santaweesuk avoids the press like the plague. We didn't have to throw an ear-splitting fit on the floor the way his comic characters tend to, but it did take much pestering and badgering before the cartoonist for Ai Tua Lek -- which stars the nation's most popular mischief-maker, Pangpond -- agreed to come out of hiding.

The film, which was shot largely in Thailand and starring mostly German and Thai actors, was supposed to open the Human Rights Film Festival in Yangon last Tuesday.
