The Spiritual Path
This short 'moving portrait' follows the Abbot of Xieng Thong Temple in Luang Prabang, a World Heritage town in the north of Laos
Although it is part of a longer video, a series of vignettes of local people that we made for the Ministry of Information & Culture in Laos; the film shown here was created as a standalone piece.
It received an honorable mention in the Moving Image category of the International Photography Awards, 2012. These prestigious awards are held on a yearly basis and this year included the moving image category for the first time.
