Mheejou in Taiwan's Women Make Waves Film Festival

Sukanya Vongsthapat has made her name as a producing partner at Baa Ram Ewe and Sahamongkol Film International with Prachya Pinkaew. She's been behind such major hits as Ong-Bak, The Love of Siam, Bangkok Love Story and Chocolate.

Her long in-the-works directorial debut, Mheejou, was released in Thai cinemas in August. Lamentably, it was in and out so quickly, I didn't get the chance to see it.

It looked like a sweet tale. The story involves the title character, a bubbly young Akha girl (Fuana Hiroyama) in northern Thailand, who wants desperately to be an on-camera talent on the local-access community television station a social worker is starting up.

So, if anybody gets to see it at the Women Make Waves Film Festival, which runs from October 17 to 26 in Taipei, let me know how you liked it.

(Thanks Stephen!)
