    The indie experience

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/03/2019

    » Sarinya Manamuti, Nicholas Hudso-Ellis and Wongsarond Menn Suthikulpanich, who designed the space at Sala Daeng, are the founders of Bangkok Screening Room. The contemporary cinema aims to serve as a platform for local independent filmmakers and films, as well as making non-blockbuster indie films and classics accessible. Having just concluded the Fem Film Festival, which screened movies highlighting struggles and accomplishments of women in honour of International Women's Day, Guru sat down with Sarinya and Hudso-Ellis to talk about Bangkok Screening Room.

    Lend a hand

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 15/03/2019

    » In a world where everything seems bleak, we try our best to find some sort of escape. Whether or not this is simply denial of reality is something we won't delve into (we're Guru, we don't do existential crises). But with the stress of the real world and our quest to discover things that would temporary alleviate what we feel, we seldom ask the question, "What can I do to make the world a little better?." It may seem cliché but there are a number of little things you can do and it's not all about volunteering in a dense forests where you have to sleep in rickety tents with no toilets (shudder) all for the sake of saving Mother Earth. There are simple things like buying something online, adopting a doggo or even go shopping that can help a cause. This week, we've got some causes that you can get behind.

    All You Need Is Scone

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 15/03/2019

    » What better way to enjoy a scone than fresh from the oven? These small biscuit-like cakes have always been a staple in the UK afternoon tea sets and have been ingrained in my travelling and studying experiences there. So, of course, being back in Thailand, if there's one thing I miss, it is a good scone. Located in the busy streets of Ari, Witty Ville aims to give customers what they want -- a well-made scone.

    People Who Do Worse Jobs Than You

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/03/2019

    » At the risk of sounding like a Debbie Downer (or should I say Sad Somchai), there may be days when we question whether we're doing well or enough at our jobs e.g. making a typo and struggling to write something relevant and fun on a weekly basis. And once that feeling takes over, you can console yourself by looking for people who're at worse at their jobs compared to you, automatically patting yourself on the back. The good news is that you don't have to look far -- and I've done that for you, dear reader. These examples should leave you thinking, "I'm not that bad."

    Let's get political (art)

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 08/03/2019

    » With the upcoming general election finally happening on Mar 24, the fate of the city hangs in the balance of voters hoping for some actual policy changes that leans toward democracy. However, some may express scepticism and while expressing one's doubts and criticism could be met with scorn and censorship, there are a few people who have expressed their opinions in other forms -- namely street art. Enter Headache Stencil, an anonymous masked political painter whose art usually deals with Thailand's recent social and political happenings.

It is rapidly expanding internationally (India, US, Colombia, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong) with new projects commencing in Indonesia, Vietnam, Kenya and the Middle East. Festival du feminin is a journey of self-discovery that allows women to feel, access and reconnect with the multiple facets of themselves, breaking away from the rigid expectations of peers, parents, colleagues, partners and society at large.
