Two young talented Lao artists have been invited in France in 2019 : dancer Nout, and filmmaker Kham (Xaysongkham Induangchanthy).
Nout, from the Fanglao company, was selected to spend 3 months -creative residency- at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, thanks to a scholarship from the French Embassy in Vientiane.
Kham, filmmaker, was chosen to present his first long feature film project at the prestigious Cannes festival last month. He was one of the 10 filmmakers coming from all over the world at the « Fabrique Cinéma », who could present his script, and seek producers.
The Institut français du Laos is happy to invite both of them to speak of their career, their stay in France, what impressed them there and how they figure out their future as artist. A wonderful way to put these young artists in the spotlight, and celebrate their talent. The presentation in lao, with translation, will be illustrated with photos. The entry is free, open to all, dance and cinema lovers, as well as creators who aspire to an artistic career.
A short documentary directed by Kham will also be shown : « Because I am a girl », 25 min.br> Location
