An Attempt To Express Thailand By Image

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

“The bird has an honor that is missing from man. Its song is mournful, alas, man is trapped, but the bird is free according to natural law.” With quotations like that, you can bet you’re not in for the typical travel video.

“Thailand: In the Garden of the Dragon” comes from New Zealand-based video maker Justin Heaney, who filmed this video in the summer of 2013 in and around Bangkok, Pai, Mae Hong Son and the Thailand/Myanmar border. According to the description of his video, Healey’s goal was to recreate “the visceral nature” of his time in Thailand.

I think it’s fair to say that that goal was clearly achieved.
