Heartbound, the critically-acclaimed 2018 Danish documentary “Fra Thailand til Thy” will be screened in Bangkok for the first time on Sunday 16 Dec 2018 at 14.00 at e Bangkok Screening Room.The screening will be followed by a Question & Answer session with Director Sine Plambech who produced the documentary together with Janus Metz.
Heartbound tells the story of how in the small northern region of Jutland, Denmark, over 900 Thai women are married to Danish men, a trend that started 25 years ago when a former sex worker from Northeastern Thailand married a Jutland native. She has since helped many lonely local men and impoverished women from her village find someone to marry and share life with.
Acclaimed filmmakers Janus Metz and Sine Plambech follow four of these Thai-Danish couples over ten years in an intimate chronicle that explores universal questions of love and romance, dreams and everyday hardship, life and death, and the very nature of family.
The documentary, will be in Danish and Thai languages with English and Thai Subtitles. Duration: 94 Minutes
