For Mary Is Happy, Mary Is Happy, author and filmmaker Nawapol Thamrongrattanarit took inspiration from @marylony, the real-life Twitter stream of an anonymous Thai high school senior. Adapted into a feature-length film exploring the trials and boys-obsessed tribulation of a fictional girl, Mary Is Happy, Mary Is Happy went on to win four awards at Thailand's national film competition, the Subhanahongsa Awards. This Thai film takeover is curated by Cannes award-winning director Apichatpong Weerasethakul and his Southeast Asian cinema collective, Mosquito Film Distribution.
