A successful Bangkok architect in the midst of a midlife crisis is reunited with an elephant he knew growing up. The two embark on a road trip to the man’s childhood home in the idyllic Thai countryside. Along the way, they meet a colorful cast of characters that includes a pair of nonplussed local police officers, a forlorn transgender sex worker, and a mysteriously wise drifter. [Kino Lorber]

"Loneliness, alienation, the ache of nostalgia and the everyday absurdity of life infuse every encounter in the unconventional road trip."
- Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"Soft and sweet, Kirsten Tan’s bright and airy debut is also quietly eloquent, speaking of a loss and regret. "
- Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
"A film that is heartwarming in its human-to-animal gaze, and yet crushing in its understanding of a human’s flaws. "
- Mike Mazzanti, The Film Stage
"They say the journey is often more meaningful than the destination, but both prove moving in "Pop Aye" - you don't always have to know where you're going for a trip to be worth taking."
- Michael Nordine, indieWire
