Uruphong Raksasad was born in 1977 to a farming family in the district of Terng, outside of Chiang Rai in Thailand’s north. He moved to Bangkok when he was 18 to further his study at Thammasat University’s Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communications, where he majored in film and photography. After graduating in 2000, he worked as a film editor and post-production supervisor on several Thai feature films. In 2004, he moved away from working on large scale feature films to focus on grassroots filmmaking through the story of his home village.
