A beautiful Thai drama which is due to have its European Premiere during the East Winds Film Festival 2017, ‘Kitarajanipon’ is the visual translation of four songs from His Majesty Bhumibol Adulyadej’s royal songbook.

Four short stories directed by Nonzee Nimibutr, Wallop Prasopphol, Yongyoot Thongkongtoon and Parkpoom Wongpoom to enchant the audience with a cinematographic interpretation of musical notes. A film which makes lips arch in the corners, which inspires and leaves a gratifying feeling.

Star, Smiles, Falling Rain and The Singers are the titles of four short stories to recreate the cycle of life, from childhood and its dreams and wishes to make one’s father proud, to the shy, wavering, but effervescent teenage love and smiles that can only be seen with the heart, to the ambition and courage of maturity, when protecting what one loves weighs more than one’s life, to old age, when life, even after all the lessons it has given, still has one more challenge for a grandmother whose granddaughter is ill.

Will the grandmother’s exceptional voice save her granddaughter’s frail life? Will it put rice on the table? Will the film end with the triumph of music?

Dreams, love, strength, determination, courage, disappointment, hope, all so well known feelings, so deeply and indisputable human, are only a taste of what makes Thai film ‘Kitarajanipon’ such a candid and soul warming experience.
