Film in 2019
The title of this film is "My Home กรุงเทพฯ -Bangkok-".
กรุงเทพฯ is Thai language and you supposed to pronounce this as
krung-thep, which means Bangkok in Thai.
Home is where you feel comfortable, relaxed, and relieved, but it does not have to be only one place. In this film, I am figuring out what home really means to me. This film explores what factors make Bangkok, Thailand as my home, even though I am from Japan.
I made this short documentary film as my final project of my junior year in college. One of the reasons why I wanted to make this film is simply because I love Bangkok. My family moved to Bangkok in 2011 and my home is in Bangkok since then. At first, I thought I'd never get used to be in Bangkok, but after few months, I fell in love with this beautiful city.
Another reason is because I wanted to encourage people to go abroad more if they are able to do so. Some people may say that staying in one place for entire life is good. I do not say that's bad thing, but I think you are not fully enjoying your life in that way. There are so many countries in the world, and each country has each people, food, environment, and culture. Knowing about another culture and people is really awesome and interesting for me. I want people to feel and experience about Bangkok through this film.
I still have so many places I want to visit and explore in this world.
And I cannot wait for it!
I hope you enjoy this film, and please let me know if you have any comments/questions about the film through the contact section below.
