The Dane Jesper Just just arrived Bangkok to shoot the movie ´Vanishin Women´. He is working together with the award winning film director, Urophong ´Toi´Raksasad from Thailand, tells the Danish daily, Politiken.
The movie will be a roadmovie called ´Vanishing Women` featuring an obese woman on her way out of the city where she has been trapped in her obesity.
