In October 2001,I was lucky enough to be able to visit Laos for about ten days. Actually, the purpose of the visit had nothing at all to do with researching the film industry. Nevertheless, I obtained a certain amount of information on the situation of film and animation in Laos from the tourist guide who accompanied me during my stay there. Since the guide was no expert on film, the information he gave was fragmentary and included some gray areas. But this is a country where hardly any information has previously been obtained.

As such, I gave credit to the rarity value of the information I was given, and decided to reproduce it here.
