Product Overview

Thai Town is a six-block area near Hollywood, Los Angeles, which is home to over 50,000 expatriated Thais. The town is such a gateway for Thais entering America it was dubbed Thailand's 77th Province. The movie follows a Thai family as it struggles to survive in Los Angeles' fast-paced consumerist culture, while still maintaining traditional values. The identity struggle between Thai-ness and the high octane way of life on the west coast of America, defined by hip-hop, drugs, street racing and violence, affects Pat, a good boy tempted by a life of crime, and his sister.

Editors Note
Note Thai-American filmmaker Smith Timsawat makes his directorial debut with PROVINCE 77, an innovative blend of ghetto drama and immigrant saga that plays out like a Thai version of BOYZ N THE HOOD. Pete (Pete Thongchua) is a restless urban youth living with his immigrant family in the predominantly Thai section of Los Angeles known as Province 77. Frustrated with his father's slow progress with the American Dream, Pete befriends a vicious gang leader and soon finds himself drawn into a lucrative but high-stakes underworld of sex, drugs, and violent crime that inexorably exacts its deadly price. Earning authentic street cred with high-octane gunfight and drag-racing sequences set to a gangsta rap soundtrack, PROVINCE 77 is a hardhitting action drama that, like its Korean counterpart BETTER LUCK TOMORROW, heralds the arrival of an exciting new genre in Asian-American cinema.
