Kriangkrai Vachiratamporn

Kriangkrai is the mastermind behind breakout Thai teen series Hormones. Not only did he write and direct the show that opened up conversations on previously taboo topics like teen sex in Thailand, the multi-talented creative also wrote the music featured on all three seasons of the series. As a notable filmmaker at GDH 559 production company, Kriangkrai also makes commercially successful feature films such as last year’s feel-good holiday flick A Gift. However, when asked which of his works he’s most proud of, the humble visionary says Hormones season 3 because of the progress it made on raising questions about pertinent but silenced issues in our society, such as HIV, domestic abuse and bullying. The passionate director believes there is still much that needs to be actively addressed in society and we can’t wait to see what he does next.

Definition of success: Being able to do what you are passionate and proud of.
