BANANA PANCAKES AND THE CHILDREN OF STICKY RICE
Directed by Daan Veldhuizen
When backpackers visit a small village in remote northern Laos in search of a traditional experience, the inhabitants of the village discover the attractions of the West. Two worlds meet at the crossroads of their respective desires: the one longing for authenticity, the other for modernity. In this micro-cosmos, their encounter leaves no one unchanged and tells a poetic story of friendship and how we relate to each other in a rapidly changing world.
Daan Veldhuizen directed, shot and edited STORIES FROM LAKKA BEACH, which won the American Cinematographer Magazine Award for Cinematography at SFF 2012.
