Saturday 27.02 - We Love Saturday Night
We Love Saturday Night, we love it because of the good music and the relaxed atmosphere and we love it, especially if the wine tastes good. We love the Saturday night, but we hate the discos, clubs, techno music and all the noise around it. We love Saturday night when the DJ puts some Classical music on!
Doors open at 22:00

Doc, 27 Min, Laos, OmeU
The Akha, originally from Mongolia, are an indigenous community in constant migration. Som Thone is a young Akha. When he was 22 years old he went to study in Vientianne, the capital of Laos. After finishing his studies he started working in the tourist office of Phongsally, the nearest city to his home village. We met there and decided to go on a journey to his native land together.

Doc, 52 min. Thailand, OmeU
The biggest tourist attractions in the north of Thailand are the indigenous communities that two decades ago fled Burma because of the violence and extreme exploitation from the State Peace and Development Council.
These communities are now obliged to maintain their traditions, so tourists,coming for a 4 village, 2 water falls and 1 elephants view package, can take pictures and film. These communities live under an lethargic and imprisoned identity after the Thai government realised that it benefits from this kind of human zoo.
