Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit

Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit (1984) is a self-taught director and one of Thailand's most successful young film-makers. His debut film 36 (Filmfest Hamburg 2013) won the debut film prize at the Busan festival and he was invited to present Mary Is Happy, Mary Is Happy* at the Venice Film Festival.

This intermedial project from Thailand is probably one of the most refreshing films of recent years. Instead of a screenplay, the director Thamrongrattanarit used the 410 tweets from a complete stranger, Twitter user @marylony. Each tweet is the basis for the next scene. Instead of the anticipated chaos of unconnected sequences, the funny, light-footed coming-of-age story of a high school student called Mary develops. Including a romance, exploding phones and a trip to Paris. #FFHH14isHappy
