Khon Kaen Urban Life
Films highlighting the life of the urban poor and their fight to improve their lives

I was born into a life of opportunities. Both of my parents have loved and supported me, my financial situation has never been dramatically unstable, and I have my health. Most importantly, I've had many opportunities in life to explore and follow my passion. However, I know that not everyone in this world is so lucky. Along with the help of Kovit Boonjear and Victor Shklyar, we will be making a series of short clips and a short film about what it's like being poor in one of the largest cities in Thailand. Highlighting members of the Network for the Rehabilitation of Community Power, a local organization helping to unite and improve the lives of Thailand's poor through grassroots movement, we will be able to shed light on their importance, as well as their ability to make positive change in their lives.

So often there's the misconception that people put themselves in the position to be poor through their actions and work ethic. However, the members of the Four Regions Slum Network are some of the most hard working, creative, and intelligent people I've gotten the pleasure to meet. For a variety of different reasons, their lives have not lead them to be able to make a profit off of the years of hard work they've endured.
