The Long Walk

Mattie Do

In The Long Walk, a subsistence farmer, living on the fringes of rural Laos, develops an obsession with the amnesiac spirit of an accident victim that haunts the dirt road where she died. Continuing with her favored theme of the supernatural, this will be the Lao-American director's third feature film. Her sophomore title, Dearest Sister, is showing at this year's festival.
