Lao Horror Director Mattie Do featured in Fangoria #168!


 Check out who got into a fancy acclaimed international magazine of horror, our favorite Lao director, Mattie Do!

But Mattie, a magazine for $9.99?!? You could have bought a lot of nacho sauce and sour patch kids with that!

In all seriousness, this is an excellent article that highlights many of the current issues Lao horror film-makers will have to contend with, especially Lao women. I'm very proud of her and her pioneering work.

I look forward to the next productions she brings forward, and hopefully it will continue to help us set new standards for what Lao consider our visual vocabulary for the horrific, an area of Lao arts and culture that have until recently remained largely an oral tradition few outside of Laos have been privy to.
