A public service announcement from Lao New Wave Cinema

Lao New Wave Cinema, the collective of Lao filmmakers who made the country's first thriller, At the Horizon, have put together a public-service video, Dos and Don'ts at the Cinema (embedded above), which aims to educate moviegoers in a nation that's still fairly new to movie theaters, at least in the last few generations of post-war history in Laos. In fact, there are just three working cinemas in the whole country.

The video is unsubtitled, but you'll get the gist.

At the Horizon, by the way, will screen in Bangkok at 8pm on March 12 at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand. Director Anysay Keola will be present for the screening. Just do yourself a favor if you haven't seen the film yet and avoid reading the synopsis on the FCCT website. It gives away entirely too much.
