CENTURY OF SMOKE – Documentary by Nicolas Graux

Produced by Derives. Shot in Laos in 2016 and 2017.

At the border of Laos, in the heart of the jungle, lives Viengthong, 20 years old. Viengthong dreams of a life elsewhere, far from the village and the fields. Between hard work and laughter, doing nothing and opium, he reveals to us the intimacy of Pingchang, his village, where he finds himself at a crossroad in his life.
