Description

Laos is a small country with a population of 6 million. 42% of its population is under the age of 40, making it a young country. It is a Buddhist centre and shares much of its culture with India. Ramayana, although an Indian mythology, is the most popular mythology in Laos and stories form the Ramayana are the most artistically represented ones. Wooden panels in the Wat Xian Thong temple tell the story of Ram and Sita, and the most popular dance theatre in Laos performs Ramayana. There are compulsory painting classes for monks in the monasteries where Ram and Sita are still their favorite characters they paint. This film shows this cultural bonding that Laos shares with the India.
