An old Laotian hermit discovers that the ghost of a road accident victim can transport him back in time fifty years to the moment of his mother's painful death. An atypical ghost story, The Long Walk takes unexpected turns as it traverses the distorted mind of someone who has suffered a deep childhood trauma. Mattie Do's camera and bold narrative gracefully combine to craft a film that defies categorization, confirming the director as a brave new artist in Southeast Asian cinema — a strong, singular voice in the male-dominated landscape of the region.
