Event Description
The Rocket

Opening Night Film

Set against the lush backdrop of rural Laos, this spirited drama focuses on a scrappy ten-year-old named Ahlo and his family. After their village is displaced to make way for a massive dam, they escape through the Laotian outback in search of a new home. Along the way, they come across a rocket festival, which Ahlo sees as a chance for a new beginning. These characters, mostly played by non-professional actors, embody the resilience and hope born out of a country affected by the legacy of war, and undergoing great economic change. Official Oscar entry from Australia. In Lao with English subtitles.

Country: Australia
Director: Kim Mordaunt
