“The sort of thing that gets a grip on your spine when you’re least expecting it”
—Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
“Metaphysical mind-melting horror… A teasingly complex thriller which blends supernatural themes with a distinctive backdrop of tropical futurism”
–Wendy Ide, Screen International
“Emotional, raw-to-the-bone filmmaking… A haunting meditation on loss”
–Matt Donato, Slashfilm
Synopsis: An old scavenger living on the fringes of a near-future society exploits a ghostly companion’s ability to traverse time, hoping to prevent his mother’s suffering from a terminal illness.
THE LONG WALK world premiered to great acclaim at the Venice Film Festival in the Giornate degli Autori section and was followed by praise out of the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s the third feature of Lao based director Mattie Do (Chanthaly, Dearest Sister), whose career has been recognized by the Oldenburg International Film Festival and Locarno International Film Festival for her breakthrough work as Laos’ first and only woman filmmaker, and the only filmmaker of the country to work in the horror and fantastic genres.
A deliberately paced story that burns with intensity and human emotion, THE LONG WALK is all at once a culturally rich ghost story, a grim near-future sci-fi, and mystery with life and death stakes that spans across decades.
