Yi Peng (Nov 3rd 2017)
In Chiang Mai, Loy Krathong is preceded by Yee Peng (The Lantern Festival), during which people release floating lanterns into the sky. The act of releasing the lantern and krathong symbolizes letting go of all ills and misfortunes in the previous year, and Buddhists also believe that if you make a wish when you set off the lantern, it will come true.
The experience we had making this short film was nothing short of spectacular! The day was filled with meeting new friends, amazing Thai cuisine, and sharing a moment of awe with people from around the world.
