Bangkok Girl Documentary From 2002 [Video]

BangkokGirl Documentary

It’s time to take a trip down memory lane with Jordan Clark’s 2002 documentary Bangkok Girl. The film is full of sweeping generalisations which seems the norm for film makers covering the underbelly of Bangkok nightlife.

Filmed in 2002 – Bangkok Girl provides a glimpse into Thailand’s notorious and booming night scene through the experiences of a 19-year-old bar girl. Working in the bars from the age of thirteen, she has managed to avoid selling her body — a remarkable revelation given her surroundings — but her refusal to take part in this all-too-common profession for young Thai women cannot last. The marketing of the night scene geared to foreigners has forever changed the city, the economy, the Thai people’s lives and desires. A daring and unabashed look at a popular Western predilection through the eyes of one girl.

From my eyes the film maker comes across as gullible and short sighted on his subject matter. I won’t say too much as it will only spoil the video for you but you’ll see where I’m coming from as you watch it.
