Tang Wong headed for Hong Kong

After making its world premiere in Berlin, Kongdej Jaturanrasmee's Tang Wong will make its Asian premiere at the Hong Kong International Film Festival.

Here's the synopsis from the HKIFF website:

A champion Korean pop dancer, a school ping-pong player and two participating in a science competition all decide to pray at a sacred shrine to make their wishes come thrue. But there's a catch – if granted, they must perform the traditional tang wong dance. Their half-hearted promise becomes a liability once they realize they have no clue how to do the dance, nor do they want to embarrass themselves in public. The conflict between modern-day values and traditional culture is amusingly empathized in the P-047 (36th HKIFF) director's latest.

It's the sole Thai entry in this year's fest, though several Thai filmmakers are taking part in the Hong Kong-Asia Film Financing Forum. Tang Wong took part in last year's HAF.

The 37th Hong Kong International Film Festival runs from March 17 to April 2.
