Director: Tubby Brothers

Our short film ‘Thai Country Living’ (อยู่บ้านนอก⁠) is about the special way of life in Thailand’s north east Isaan region. A place which transports you to a timeless world far away from modern Bangkok. Friendship, family, community, pride - and celebration after a hard days work - are the rhythms that make the village tick. The film shares the life of Suman - a farmer and craftsman dedicated to the traditional ways of country living. Suman is an important part of village life - with the instruments he makes being essential in celebrations, get togethers, birthdays and drinking sessions. In a time when global culture is slowly eroding unique traditions, we wanted to celebrate a simpler and more authentic way of life we found in Suman’s peaceful and mediative world.
