Cast: Ploiyukhon Rojanakatanyoo, Anongnart Yusananda, Jeff Watson Kiatmontri, Kesavatana Dohrs
Thailand, 2016, Bluray, Color, 75’

The film is based on interviews of 100 Thai teenagers age between 17-19 with diverse gender identities. They have shared their experiences, personal life, and attitude towards their social life in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, where they have grown up in. The common theme of these stories is their coming of age, confusion with dreams and love, while parenting is the major factor. “#BKKY” is narrated through teenager’s interview by creating a new character named JoJo, a 17-year-old girl who represents all stories during the transitioning moment from 12th grade to university, the moment that they have many first experiences of life and simultaneously try to discover their true identities.

“The portrait tells us that there is an inner and an outer dimension of the human condition; it provides—or should provide—information about both the physical and psychological character of an individual.”
