TEUGA (English Subtitles)
A Karen village in Thailand’s highest mountain (Doi Inthanon), home to both wildlife and indigenous peoples, has traditionally coexisted with its natural landscape through rice cultivation. However, for Asak’s young family, a recent interest in domestic tourism on the mountain has created new avenues of metamorphosis for village life.
This film will not only evoke in audiences a sense of the Karen people’s temporal and spatial lifeworld, but also allow self reflection of the landscapes that have embraced us, that we live today, and that we will nurture into the future.
