Trailer, posters for Mheejou
Mheejou (อาข่าผู้น่ารัก, also Akha Phoo Narak or Bannok TV) is a long-in-the-works project by Sukanya Vongsthapat, who's made her name as a producing partner with Prachya Pinkaew at Sahamongkol Film International.
The story involves the title character, a bubbly young Akha hilltribe girl (Fuana Hiroyama) in northern Thailand, who becomes a personality on the tribe's local-access television station.
It's all very sweet, and looks to be quite moving as well. The trailer from YouTube is embedded below.
Meejhou opens in Thai cinemas on Thursday.
