Malila: the Farewell Flower (2017)
I loved Malila: the Farewell Flower (มะลิลา). It never got a theatrical release in the U.S., although it played several film festivals, including LGBTQ ones. It's a gorgeous movie about spirituality and queerness and flowers and death and grief. It stars a brilliant Sukollawat Kanarot, who is a big TV star in Thailand, and it was directed by trans filmmaker Anucha Boonyawatana. It's lovely. Oh and the score is gorgeous!
