How to Win at Checkers (Every Time)

พี่ชาย My Hero

Josh Kim, Thailand/Indonesia/USA, 2015, 80 min, K-16

American Korean Josh Kim made quite an effort to adapt a Thai bestseller book into film: he even learned the Thai language. 11-year old Oat and his big brother Ek, who faces the army draft lottery have to survive and grow up on the fringe of economic survival. How to Win at Checkers (Every Time) is a warm growing-up story set in Bangkok and sprinkled with social criticism and gay undertones.
