Watch this: Trailer for the 2011 Luang Prabang Film Festival
The folks from the Luang Prabang Film Festival have put together a trailer of highlights for this year's edition. It's embedded above.
The fest runs from December 3 to 7 in Laos' former royal capital and Unesco World Heritage site, and features movies from across Southeast Asia. The schedule is posted at Facebook.
If the trailer seems a bit heavy on Thai action and Dan Chupong, keep in mind the Thai stunt star is in two movies at the fest – Tabunfire, a.k.a. Kon Fai Bin or Dynamite Warrior, and the high-seas fantasy Queens of Langkasuka. I expect all the Thai movies – the boxing documentary Lumpinee and the Isaan childhood friendship story Panya Reanu, as well as the Lao-Thai co-production Lao Wedding, are also in the fest – will crowd-pleasers.
