Happy Lao New Year from Fresno
Lao New Year Fresno, 2014.
As the Year of the Horse arrives, we see Nang Songkran with a sword riding a tiger, along with her six sisters, the self-severed head of a four-faced riddling king while a Nak comes forth from a cranky Ngeuk's mouth. Circling the Buddhist temple of Lao refugees in America after 40 years, it seems like there should be a story in here somewhere.
