Parinda Mai

PARINDA Mai (1990, Thailand) is filmmaker who studied at Princeton University and gained a Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, specialising in cinematography and film production. Her work has been screened at festivals and galleries around the world. Inspired by the folk story Twelve Sisters, learned across multiple platforms as a child, she reinterpreted the moral of the story and its implications with 12 Kalpas – A Beginning of Beginning (2021). Blinded by Centuries stems from the same project, and was selected for IFFR 2023.
