A celebration of all things indie, abstract and political. 

Bangkok Underground Film Festival, the celebration of local indie cinema, returns this Sep 29 and 30.

As part of Bangkok Biennial, the screening in the carpark of Sathorn's Gallery Ver will showcase 20 shorts, features and video artworks from Thailand, the U.S., France, Denmark, Australia and the U.K.

Started in 2015, the festival aims aims to provide a platform for independent, emerging filmmakers across across a variety of genres including documentary, drama, video art, animation, experimental and feature film.

Among this year's highlights are Terra Nullius, an Australian-U.S. production by Soda Jerk billed as a "political revenge fable," and Chaweng Chaiyawan's So-Khin, the story of a married couple from Myanmar who are employed on a rubber plantation in southern Thailand and subject to persecution from all directions.
