This is Anousone Sirisackda, right now probably the incarnation of the film industry of Laos. More on him soon. Right now, I just want to share some picture of the former “Cinema Row” of Vientiane, Laos, that he showed me after an interview at the Vientianale Film Festival last week.

    All in all, what I like best are these decayed movie theaters, living traces of a time gone by, but still filled with human presence, this time caught by the camera out of the screen. Congratulations on KON!
