The Lao film industry has experienced rapid growth as more young people are making movies while the equipment has become more accessible and affordable.

The International Film Festival in Vientiane – the so-called Vientinale – presents the screening of Anysay Keola’s feature film AT THE HORIZON (2011, 101 min) about two different worlds colliding: the wealthy influential people on the one hand and the poor and honest on the other hand.

Sin, a wealthy boy had been spoiled by his parents and has never realized the importance of self-dependence and how to become a responsible man. The boy lives his life relying on his parents wealth and power, making him even more arrogant and pompous.

Lud, a mute middle-aged man came from a rural area to be a motorcycle mechanic in Vientiane. His wife worked as a market woman and they had a six-year-old daughter. Though Lud’s life was simple, his family was warm and loving. One day Lud unexpectedly faces the greatest loss of his life caused by Sin.

An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There's Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

exhibition
"Human Nature" by Oeur Sokuntevy @ Java Café & Gallery
 
event pic

This series of work by Cambodian artist Oeur Sokuntevy, Human Nature, explores the ambiguity between humanity and the natural world through fantastical scenarios. By creating characters that are animal, human and plant, the artist proposes an undeniable relationship between them. One of co-dependency, accountability and sometimes abuse. In What My Father Gave Me a child pulls back the ocean tide like a bed sheet and uncovers a pile of garbage and animal carcasses. Although living in a beautiful and natural environment, the damage caused by humans is ever-present, if only hidden, and the child must bear the consequences of the actions of her forefathers. In Empty Promises a woman bearing on her head a hut with her family inside offers an empty bowl to a unicorn-monkey. Thinking first of her own survival, she makes only a gesture to give back to nature but it is empty and useless.

We as humans often want to hide or disguise our animal nature. Through intellectual pursuits we try to distance ourselves from the biological instinct and deny our responsibility to the environment. With meticulous detail, Sokuntevy constructs a world populated by these hybrid characters. There is no distinction between nature, human and animal—it is through this uncertainty that the artist builds a narrative. Sokuntevy is known for her surrealistic vision, challenging topics of feminine sexuality, traditionalism and in this series on humanity’s relationship with nature she is equally bold and dramatic. Throughout the series, Sokuntevy calls into question human liability by confronting the viewer with a simple notion that “humans are animals too.”

Sokuntevy Oeur (b. 1983) is a female painter from Cambodia who is boldly leading the charge of the country’s emerging women’s art movement. At the forefront of her practice is an impassioned personal search to determine where, as an independent woman and artist, she can identify herself within contemporary Cambodian society and the natural world.

"Fucking War: Tardi, Verney and World War I" @ Institut Français
 
event pic

Drawings by Jacques Tardis, texts by Jean-Pierre Verney.

This exhibition reveals the images of World War 1 that French cartoonist Jacques Tardi drew for his book „Fucking war‟, along with texts written by historian Jean-Pierre Verney. It looks into the connections between time and storytelling, between memory and oblivion, truth and subjectivity, in an attempt to show how Tardi‟s works mark collective representations. In fact, Tardi remains a reference for the cartoonist who ventured to draw World War 1.

Within a project launched in 2014 by the AEFE (Agency for the teaching of French abroad) for the World War I commemoration, students of the Lycée français René Descartes have worked on the project « Cambodians and World War I ». They designed two boards, one about the War Memorial in Phnom Penh and one about two Cambodian soldiers who died during World War I, which will both be exhibited on this occasion.
