I spend a lot of time on the internet which isn’t always a bad thing because about two years ago I stumbled on to the work of Stephane Benini.
He is a film maker from France and in my opinion is one of the best out there. I hadn’t been keeping up with what he had been doing as of late and then I decided to check and the man has been busy. He has quite a bit of Muay Thai and Kickboxing work that anyone that loves either sport will enjoy.
I noticed he had just uploaded a short film called Chok Dee 2017 a month ago and figured I would start making up for all the stuff I had missed with that. I felt like a moron for not keeping up with what he had been doing recently, because it is great. Stephane knows how to tell a story with minimal dialogue and the music he picks is amazing.
The look, the feel, it is all different than what you are used to seeing in Muay Thai or Kickboxing film and documentaries. He doesn’t need to use much dialogue if any because the story still comes across with his images and music.
