Welcome to Sondr!

As a 100% Belgian and independent post-production studio, we are a passionate collective with over a decade of experience and a wealth of knowledge in the art of post-production. The word "Sonder" encapsulates our belief in the realization that everyone has a unique story, and at Sondr, we are here to bring those stories to life.


When the British left Burma, about 60 years ago, the Burmese government embarked on a still ongoing civil war against the many ethnic minorities in the country, including the Karen people. Over the years, many Karen fled the state to neighbouring Thailand. I AM GOLDEN KAREN tells the story of Thaawa, a young Karen rapper, who is part of an entire generation that has grown up in Thailand, but nurtures a strong desire to return to their motherland.

In this film, we follow Thaawa as he (re)negotiates his identity from being a young migrant arriving in Bangkok to becoming a father. He questions his responsibilities towards the family and his desire to both settle in Thailand and return to Karen State, Burma.
