Education and careerEdit
As a director, her films tend towards experimentalism. Her first feature film, I-San Special, featured the audio from a radio soap opera set in a luxury resort hotel, played out by passengers on a rickety bus heading from Bangkok to Isan.
Her 2005 feature, 3 Friends, co-directed with Aditya Assarat and Pum Chinaradee, and starring Napakpapha Nakprasitte, is a blend of the "movie star exploitation" VCDs and unscripted reality television series, showing the bikini-clad actress taking a beach vacation with two other friends.
