camera camera

here is a trailer for a new documentary that just premiered at the la film festival about travel in Laos; see the synopsis below.

CAMERA, CAMERA - Trailer from malcolm murray

westerners young and old arrive in Laos, and so do their cameras. they document a fragile and deceptively brutal world, revealing themselves in the process. CAMERA, CAMERA quietly calls upon viewers to ponder the multifaceted and often ambiguous impacts of travel and photography on citizens of two worlds.(directed by malcolm murray. written by michael meyer. produced by josh haner.)

i don't think i will editorialize this time. here are links to some reviews about the movie:
