Website for Good Morning, Luang Prabang
The website for the Laotian-Thai road movie romance,
Sabaidee Luang Prabang, or Good Morning, Luang Prabang, has gone live.
Set for release on April 10, just ahead of the April 13 New Year's holiday that is celebrated across Southeast Asia (Songkran in Thailand, Pi Mai Lao in Laos), Sabaidee Luang Prabang stars Ananda Everingham as a Lao-Australian photographer who returns to his father's home country of Laos and gets in touch with his heritage during a trip that takes him the length of the country. Along the way, he bonds and falls in love with his female guide, played by Laotian beauty queen Khamlek Pallawong.
The first Laotian feature film in nearly 20 years, it is a Laotian-Thai co-production, co-directed by Kiev-educated Laotian Anusorn Sirisakda and Thai filmmaker Sakchai Deena.
