Mattie Do


Mattie Do was raised in the United States and emigrated back to Laos with her family in 2009. Her first feature film CHANTHALY went on to become the first Lao film to screen in international film festivals in North America and Europe. In 2013, Mattie became the first Lao filmmaker to represent Lao film at the Cannes Film Market and was one of ten international filmmakers selected to participate in the Toronto International Film Festival Talent Lab that year. Mattie Do is, to date, the only woman to direct a feature film in Laos.
