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.
