Being a film junkie, she joined the Vientianale film festival in 2011 and is now codirector of the festival.

Vientianale on the Road
BY HELENE OUVRARD
@ VOL 7
ON SEP 14, 2017
When the Vientianale film-festival turns off the lights for another year, so begins 'Vientianale on the Road'. Helene Ouvard takes us on the road less travelled through Lao provinces from Bokeo to Champassak. Stopping at villages and schools, where make-shift screens are set up, or in reclaimed halls, we witness the sheer excitement of those taking part in a film workshop, or enjoying the best of recent Lao films.
