Thida Plitpholkarnpim, 45, founded the Documentary Club in 2014 through the crowdsourcing platform Taejai.com, and since has grown it into a 130,000-strong community of independent film enthusiasts. Now, the club is set to take over two new homes in Bangkok’s upcoming creative spaces of Chang Chui and Warehouse 30, where they plan to host regular screenings.

Sathorn Unique Tower

Sathorn Unique, the 47-story unfinished building on Charoenkrung Road dubbed “Ghost Tower” since its abandonment during the Tom Yam Kung economic crisis of 1997, has long been a drawcard for adventurous travelers. Twenty years later, Pansit Torsuwan, 46, the low-profile owner of the building, has finally come out to put a stop to trespassing on the property. With Museum Siam just unveiling an exhibition dedicated to the financial crisis, Pansit defends the tower from accusations it’s a monument to the country’s failure.

Chang Chui

One of the most exciting art projects of the year is Chang Chui: Thailand Tomorrow, a new creative space taking up an 11-rai plot of land in Thonburi district that’s set to open in late May. It’s the brainchild of Somchai Songwattana, 57, CEO and art director of Flynow, one of Thailand’s pioneering fashion brands. Here, he opens up about the passion behind this ambitious project.
