LAOS: I POPOLI DELLE MONTAGNE
Switzerland / 1995 / 48'
Faces, looks, clothes and colours, never seen before by the western viewer, offer a journey among the mountain people of Laos.

Opium is the “smoking dragon” and represents a fundamental rite their life and is far from the culture of death with the use of drugs practised by the western civilization.
