ABOUT KIK (Pronounced GIG)
Hailing from Bangkok, Thailand, Pongkarnda "Kik" Udomprasert is an LA-based director, intent on bringing our common humanity to the screen through complex, relatable female characters. Having been raised with privilege in her home country, while now identifying as a minority in America, Kik firmly believes she can do justice to the portrayal of both experiences, hopefully to shed some light on our necessity to move closer and start dialogues instead of the opposite.
Kik has spent over seventeen years of her life dedicated to her dream of becoming a director. She earned a BA in television production from Thailand, and an MFA in film production with an emphasis in directing from Chapman University, during which program her film played at several international festivals, including Aesthetica Short Film Festival. Kik always brings her utmost commitment to excellence and her sense of humor to the table, no matter how great the pressure.
