Hi-So gets U.K. release
Hi-So (ไฮโซ), Aditya Assarat's partly autobiographical existential look at a man caught between Eastern and Western cultures, is getting a theatrical release in the U.K.
Starring Ananda Everingham, Aditya's sophomore followup to Wonderful Town, follows a melancholy U.S.-schooled Thai actor on a film location where he's visited by his American girlfriend (Cerise Leang). He then drifts toward a young Thai woman (Sajee Apiwong) who works for the film company, and the cycle of doomed relationship repeats itself.
Set to premiere on March 1, it's the first release by a new company, Day for Night.
Aditya himself will attend the premiere at the Curzon Renoir, supported by Chang beer. He'll also be on hand for a March 2 screening at the Hackney Picturehouse.
