Biography

En 1999, Bangjong Pisanthankun est diplômé de l'université de Chulalongkorn à Bangkok en spécialisation dans le cinéma.

En 2000, il a réalisé un court-métrage, Plae Kao et a été finaliste pour le meilleur film et meilleur scénario lors de la compétition the Click Radio comedy. Ensuite, Colorblind, un court-métrage que Bangjong a écrit et réalisé a été projeté dans plusieurs festivals (the Thai Short Film and Video Festival, the Asian Film Symposium, Raindance, Asiexpo à Lyon, Toronto Reel Asian, Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival et the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival).

Il a notamment travaillé comme critique de cinéma pour Starpics, un magazine de divertissement cinématographique thaïlandaise populaire et a été choisi comme directeur adjoint pour les publicités télévisées.

Son premier long métrage, Shutter, qu'il a réalisé et écrit avec Parkpoom Wongpoom, a eu un grand succès. Banjong et Parkpoom Wongpoom font encore équipe en 2007 pour le film d'horreur Alone dont ils ont été également en compétition pour le meilleur film asiatique lors de Bangkok International Film Festival 2007.

Ce film est un immense succès en Thaïlande et il a été projeté dans toute l'Asie du Sud-Est, en Corée du Sud, en Chine, en Australie et aux États-Unis.

The film is divided into twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. The varieties of death range from accidents to murders.

The story is set in mid-19th century in Siam, during the King Mongkut Era and at the height of the Rattanakosin Dynasty, when Siam was plagued with wars with its neighbouring kingdoms. Mak (Mario Maurer) was drafted to serve in a war to invade against Kingdom of Konbaung, forcing him to leave behind his pregnant wife Nak (Davika Hoorne) at the town of Phra Khanong, not far from Central Bangkok. He was wounded during a battle and sent to a medical camp, where he met Ter, Puak, Shin and Aey, who later became his best friends. Meanwhile, in Phra Khanong, Nak struggled alone painfully to give birth to the baby. Shortly after, villagers in the neighborhood heard her singing lullabies to her baby, causing hair-raising chills and making them cower in fear. Rumours started circulating around the village that Nak had already died in labor and was now a ghost haunting the house.
