Thai film at the New York Asian Film Festival 2022

I have been a fan of Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit, a Thai director for awhile now. In particular, I appreciate his dark humor and how his films make me ponder about life. His best works include Heart Attack (2015) and Happy Old Year (2019). His films and characters just linger, long after the final credit.

The good news is his latest film Fast and Feel Love will be showing at Lincoln Center on July 15, 2022 as a part of the New York Asian Film Festival. This is how to get a ticket: LINK to Lincoln Center Calendar.

I can’t wait.
