On the shores of lake Nam Ngum, in northern Laos, two destinies cross paths. On one hand, France a young woman sought after by two men from opposite worlds. On the other, Hugo, a Frenchman in search of the woman who left him a year earlier.
Born in Laos, Klyé Simon Lang moved to France in 1976 at the age of 10. After studying visual arts, he held a teaching position for 10 years before devoting himself to photography, writing and film. The 2000s are for Lang, a decade of cinematographic experimentations within the Film flamme collective based in Marseille. In 2007 he initiated a collaboration with Shellac in an effort to revive cinematographic production in Laos: Ici finit l’exil / feature-length / documentary / 2010 - Tuk Tuk / medium-length / fiction / 2012 - Goodbye Mister Wong / feature-length / fiction / 2020.
