The Convert – Beyond PhadThai : Director’s talk (Clips)
To marry her Muslim boyfriend, June, a Buddhist girl, undergoes the process of conversion to Islam. If you’re untouched by her sincerity as she adjusts to culture shock and married life, or feel nothing of her sudden sense of loss when the Imam tells her she can no longer bow to Buddha statues, you’re made of stone. A lovely film for an argumentative date.
