About me / Bio:
Vichit Kounavudhi was a distinguished Thai film director and screenwriter, known for his significant contributions to the Thai film industry. Born on January 23, 1922, in Bang Khla, Chachoengsao, Thailand, Vichit graduated from Vajiravudh College in 1946 and began his career as a journalist under the pen name Kounavudhi. He entered the film industry in 1950, initially taking on the role of a villain in 'Fa Kamnod' before transitioning to screenwriting and directing. His first screenplay, 'Santi-Weena,' directed by Tawee 'Kru Marut' Na Bangchang, won several awards at the 1955 Asia Film Festival in Tokyo. Vichit directed 23 films, including action films in the 1960s and early '70s, starring legendary actors like Mitr Chaibancha and Adul Dulyarat. In the 1970s, his work began to reflect social issues, with films like 'Mia Luang' or 'First Wife' and 'Khon Phukao' or 'Mountain People.' His docudrama 'Son of the Northeast' is considered his best film, depicting the hard-scrabble life in Thailand's rural northeast. Vichit was awarded an honorary doctorate in Communication Arts by Chulalongkorn University in 1983 and was honored as a National Artist by Thailand's National Culture Commission in 1987. His legacy continues to inspire future generations of filmmakers. Vichit Kounavudhi passed away on July 31, 1997, in Bangkok.
