ALTAÏR FILM CONFERENCE: LAOS
"An Indochinese renaissance
A FILM DIRECTED AND PRESENTED BY PATRICK MOREAU

Tuesday, March 22, 2022 at 2:30 pm
Once called "the kingdom of a million elephants", Laos now has only a thousand elephants. If the three-headed elephant was for centuries the symbol of royalty, it is the Naga, a mythological Indian figure derived from the cobra, which remains the object of veneration for the Lao. It can be found guarding the pagoda enclosures, or in the form of the long dugout canoes that compete in a display of colours during the races that mark the end of the Buddhist Lent. Laos is attracting more and more travellers, captivated by its sparkling pagodas and the beauty of its nature. Travellers who are careful not to disturb the serenity of the sites which, like Luang Prabang, Vientiane, the capital of Laos, or the Khmer temple of Wat Phu, rise on the banks of the Mekong.

A fragile country that must fight to maintain its environmentally friendly image. Discover a fascinating country that seems to be superbly unaware of the hectic globalization at work among its neighbors. "Authenticity" is perhaps the word that best describes this charming and serene country.
