Extending from China to Southeast Asia, the Mekong River serves as a vital natural and economic lifeline for the regions it runs through. However, the river – and the communities that depend on it – is increasingly threatened by climate change, pollution and industrial expansion. Produced by the Luang Prabang Film Festival, the pan-Asian collaboration Mekong 2030 gathers filmmakers from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam for a Ten Years-style anthology that envisions the state of the river in the year 2030. The five narrative shorts provide perspective from each region through diverse, allegorical stories that present a sobering vision and crucial plea for the Mekong’s future.
