Palatpol Mingpornpichit; 2016; Thailand; 96 min. in Thai with English subtitles
Adopted at a young age, Butr (Sinjai Plengpanich) has always felt right at home in a family with two dads. But when bullying at school leads to erratic behavior, his fathers wonder if they alone can provide everything their child needs. Only through reconnecting with his estranged birth mother does Butr discover the true meaning of “family.” Asda Panichkul and Nat Sakdatorn excel in portraying the journey of a couple brought together by the love of their son. Palatpol Mingpornpichit’s FATHERS is an aesthetically pleasing and emotional look at the life of gay couples in modern Thailand.
