First Lao-made movie hits the cinemas

Huk Aum LumThe first all-Laos made movie Huk Aum Lum, a Lao term meaning “well-blended love”, has made in to cinemas in Bangkok in a move that is seen as the dawn of a new movie industry rising in the landlocked country.

The movie, whose plot revolves around a famous singer who returns to his rural village, was funded by a Lao company, Hemon Studios, stars an all-Lao cast and was made by a team of young Lao filmmakers, members of Lao New Wave, a group of young film professionals educated mostly in Thailand that want to revive the movie culture in Laos and do away with the usual propaganda films or melodramas and soap operas imported from Thailand.

In 2010, the newly launched Luang Prabang Film Festival created enthusiasm and genuine hope that Laos is getting ready for this new movie movement that would bring a new variety in popular Lao culture and at the end make Lao films for the Lao audience.

The Lao New Wave is at present the most active group in trying to bring back the light of the cinema screen. The team is now working on a new project, an ensemble of romantic films called Vientiane In Love in which private investors are involved.
