If you think you’ve seen it all, we’ll prove you wrong. This eye-opening docu-series will take you on the craziest, most emotional ride as you delve into the uniquely untold stories of Southeast Asian individuals.
We’re not screening just one, but THREE episodes of deeply personal, controversial, and funky stories.
For starters, we’ll explore how “sex” has redefined the once-conservative Southeast Asia by investigating how the sexy makeover of the traditional Dangdut dance successfully sweeps an Islamic city like Jakarta.
You’ll also venture through the world of Miss Tiffany’s Pageant with host Pan Pan Nakprasert (aka Pangina Heals – Thailand’s premier drag queen), as she reveals her battle for societal acceptance as a transgender, along with contestant Esmond’s journey to become Thailand’s slaying crowned queen.
Curious for more? We’ve got endless stories from the hunt for sugar daddies in Malaysia to the fight for equality as a Little Person in Manila for you.
Andra Nasrie, one of our very own series producers and editor of Coconuts Jakarta, will also be at the screening to answer your burning questions about the inspiration behind the episodes!
