My Thai Bride is a film that takes the story of an unlikely couple and through subtle analysis extends their human dramas into a moving examination of political, cultural and economic power dynamics. It is a film that destabilises its viewer’s empathy through a nuanced and even-handed portrayal of charged, contradictory terrain, and reframes who exactly is the conqueror and conquered.
We were inspired by its storytelling, which is both entertaining and surprising, and for a first time filmmaker showed incredible ability to instill trust in the subjects. So the winner is; My Thai Bride!
The Jury highly commends My Thai Bride, director David Tucker as this was the film that stayed with all of us for its complexity, deeply upsetting moral ambiguity about a subject so often stereotyped. It is very well crafted and showed an intriguing transformation of the two central characters – both victims of a global economy.
