Screen Division supports Lao’s first horror filmmaker

Mattie Do is Lao’s first female horror filmmaker. Two years ago, she shot her first film Chanthaly on a Canon 550D for US$5’000. The film was released in the theatres in Lao and got great reviews. Chanthaly became the first Lao film to screen in major festivals outside of Southeast Asia and the film had its American premiere at the renowned Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX. After that, the film screened all over the world.

In May, Mattie Do was invited as one of only ten directors selected to present her new film in the World Cinema Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival as part of the Institut Français’ Fabrique des Cinemas du Monde.

Mattie is now preparing her second feature, Nong Hak, which tells the story of a Lao village girl, whose only chance of escaping indentured poverty is to manipulate her wealthy cousin’s illness into dependence. Oh, and it’s got ghosts, too.

You can support Mattie through her IndieGoGo Campaign and help her gather the money to launch production. Have a look at the presentation video:
