The Last Day of Siamese Connection Rediscover

Standard

I spent my Saturday afternoon checking out the exhibit yesterday and it showed the determination of the Thai artists living aboard. I was amazed at how much work the Thai Artist Alliance put into the second annual show of this wonderful series. A couple of stand-out pieces  are a short film called Homework by Kanin Koonsumitawong, which debates the ambiguity of Thai American identity, another short film called Homecoming by Chananun Chotrungroj, which discussed the theme of sexual identity. Though I personally feel that the former film was on a bit of a preachy side towards the end, I know nothing about film and everyone is a critic. My friend, Siras, an upcoming dancer, also made an elegant dance film that you definitely should check it out. The dance movie was also accepted to showcase in an upcoming art festival in Europe. ( I will have to double check with her where it will be.)

So, if you are in NY and you don’t already have plans for your Sunday afternoon, I suggest heading out to Brooklyn to enjoy live music and good arts to support the Thai artists. They have worked so hard for the whole year, show them some love.

On the side note, we are reaching 3,000 visiting hits soon. This is not bad at all for a small blog that has been up and running for eight months, isn’t it?
