It's a good year for Lao horror with the release of Mattie Do's second feature film, Dearest Sister, which is getting some serious notice.
Wired Magazine, has a new profile, “Mattie Do, Laos’ Sole Female Director, Scares Up Attention With Dearest Sister,” by Nathan Mattise. Fortune Magazine’s column “The World’s Most Powerful Women” cited her for their November 2016 issue. NBC News also just featured her in the article "As Laos’ First Female Filmmaker, Mattie Do Shows What’s ‘Behind the Doors."
This is a very exciting development for Lao cinema and will hopefully encourage many more to join her in her vision and celebrate her success which has been so hard-earned.
