2050 Productions is a small documentary team based in Bangkok.
2050 primarily focuses on Southeast Asia. We’re rabidly curious people obsessively chasing powerful stories. Our past work has focused on monks, vanishing tribes, headhunters and vigilantes. With our journalism background, we seek to rise above Western journalism’s worst habits. In lieu of reports hastily assembled from cheap stereotypes, we try to present our subjects with complexity.
Asia in the 21st century is a privilege — and we take pride in illuminating the lives of people who are too often overlooked.
As for our name? 2050 alludes to the year 2050, right in the center of the unfolding Asian century. Human civilization's center of gravity is moving east — and yet Western societies still fail to grasp the immensity of this shift.
So we're here to tell Asian stories, decipher Asian issues and reveal the often-overlooked links between Asia and the West. Our storytelling offers a glimpse at the world to come.
