Bangkok From Above

We love this whimsical, slightly surreal video from Pieter Manders called Bird’s Eye Bangkok. Using a camera effect called ‘Tilt & Shift’, Pieter is able to showcase Bangkok in all of its splendor. He captures the traffic and chaos of main streets, the calm and commotion of everyday life and the flowing commerce of the Chao Phraya river which is the lifeblood of the city.

On every Tuesday this month we’ll present another installment in our October Film Festival of interesting videos from across Asia. We start with Bangkok a city which needs no introduction.

If you live in Thailand, visit here regularly or have it on you bucket list, this magical video is a great reminder of what makes the city unique.
