Thai film 'Hunger' to premiere on Netflix on this date
The film is directed by Sitisiri Mongkolsiri
Hunger, the upcoming Thai film, will premiere on Netflix on April 8.
Directed by Sitisiri Mongkolsiri and written by Kongdej Jaturanrasamee, the film tells a story about human hunger through Aoy (Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying), who runs her family’s street food stall, and culinary genius Chef Paul (Nopachai ‘Peter’ Jayanama), who leads a top private chef team called Hunger. When Aoy was invited to join Paul, she encounters Tone (Gunn Svasti), the team’s sous-chef, who plays a pivotal role in the ensuing showdown between her and Paul.
Director said that the film is a journey of two people, each driven by their own hunger, into many situations and complications. “An advantage of having the actors know cooking skills is that they could get into their characters more authentically. This made the shoot and the performances much better,” explains Sitisiri.
