The daughter continues to return to the lake hoping to hug her father again one day. Oscar-winning animation about longing and the passing of time.

  • Onlookers

    dir. Kimi Takesue

    Onlookers offers a visually striking, immersive meditation on travel and tourism in Laos, reflecting on how we all live as observers. Traversing the country's dusty roads and tranquil rivers, we watch as elaborate painterly tableaus unfold, revealing the whimsical and at times disruptive interweaving of locals and foreigners in rest and play. Onlookers invites audiences to reflect on their own modes of tourism, while asking the looming existential questions: Why do we travel? What do we seek?
