Tang Wong shimmies into Thai cinemas on August 29

Writer-director Kongdej Jaturanrasamee has secured a local release for his latest independent feature Tang Wong (ตั้งวง), with producer Soro Sukhum recently informing me that it's set for screening in around 15 or 20 Thai theaters from August 29.

Colorful posters and a trailer (embedded below) are accompanying the release.

The teen-oriented comedy-drama is about four schoolboys from various backgrounds who pray to a shrine and make a promise to perform the traditional tang wong dance if they are successful in their endeavors. The problem is, none of them know much about tradition nor about dancing. So they enlist the help of a ladyboy to teach them the moves.

Made with the support of the Culture Ministry's Office of Contemporary Art and Culture and the Hong Kong-Asia Film Financing Program (HAF), Tang Wong premiered at this year's Berlin International Film Festival and also screened at the Hong Kong fest.
