Synopsis

Girls Don’t Cry


Thamrongrattanarit digs deep into the emotions of the girls who form the 48 strong Bangkok band BNK48, modelled on the Japanese idol band AKB48, in which only 16 of the girls are chosen for each recording or performance. The girls talk openly about their feelings – what it’s like to be the most popular girl, never being chosen to perform, and the pressures of a never-ending popularity contest.


Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival 2019


Aperture is dedicated to screening some of the boldest, most challenging and striking films from the Asian and Pacific regions, exploring issues around diversity and cultural identity, as well as the inherent links between and blurred boundaries within Asia and the Pacific. Aperture is the only festival in the UK to cover the whole of the Asian region and also to explore Oceania.


Presented by Day for Night in partnership with the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM), University of Westminster
