biography

Soros Sukhum was born in Bangkok, Thailand. 

He studied Film Production at Rangsit University’s Faculty of Communication Arts. He started his career by working in all areas of film production and management. 

This period coincided with the first generation of independent film in Thailand, and Soros was part of the teams that made "Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Mysterious Object at Noon" (2000) and "Pimpaka Towira’s One Night Husband" (2003).
Now with almost ten years of experience, Soros has become a producer at the forefront of the second generation of independent filmmakers. Through establishing Pop Pictures with Aditya, he has produced "Wonderful Town" (2007), "Anocha Suwichakornpong’s The Sparrow" (2008), and now "High Society"  (2009).

Besides these features, Soros is also producing many short films by other young directors who are all coming of age in the HD digital revolution currently happening in Thailand.
Soros believes it is this meeting of youth and technology that is creating the most interesting cinema
