The Oscar nominee movie, Nerakhoon, is
one of a kind. The first ever documentary directed by a Lao-American (Thavisouk Phrasavath) depicts
the life of Lao refugees in Brooklyn, New York, from their journey to this
previously unknown new country to their struggle to live a normal life and to
fit in, including all the ordeals they had to endure - gang violence, assault,
robbery and even death. Nerakhoon Documentary takes 23 long years to finish.
