A Trip to the Vientianale in Laos

May 16, 2011

I went with two of my students to the Vientianale in Vientiane, Laos, to present our magazine KON. The Cinema of Cambodia. Back in Phnom Penh, I have to say that I did not take a lot of very good pictures, and nothing that gives you an idea of the scope of the event. It was quite impressive, to say the least, especially considering that the festival was put together by volunteers with a shoe string budget and that Laos basically has no film industry. The whole event developed out of a short film competition two years ago, but at this time included screenings of Uncle Boonmee and the premiere of a new film from Laos, arguably the first local film in more than two decades.
