Go with filmmaker Dave Katague and photographers Rob Mulally and Ewen Bell on a journey to Laos with ‘Photography Across Borders’. In this wonderfully-shot documentary, filmed with the new LUMIX GH5 mirrorless camera, you’ll experience the powerful creative exchange that took place when the LUMIX ambassador team worked with local photography students from Carol Kresge’s My Library community language project. Using cameras and lenses donated to My Library by LUMIX, the photographers participated in workshops and visited some incredible locations around the Luang Prabang region to take in its beauty and find some awe-inspiring photographic moments… see for yourself!

My Library – The Language Project
“Part of what my project is about believing that everybody deserves an opportunity to improve themselves and their lives and their community, and good tools are part of that opportunity so I’m extremely grateful that the tools will not hold them back.”

On the first day of filming the photography workshop in Laos, we all visited the Mekong at Sunset ? It was so beautiful and relaxing hearing the sound of the river rushing past, my shoes squelching through the wet sand, my roller bags wheels crunching with sand. The stinging of the sweat dripping into my eyes and the intense heat from glidecamming everything, hilariously contrasted with the tourists sitting, relaxing and casually taking pictures. Here’s a still from the #Gh5 of Novice Mai, one of the selected students for the photography workshop.
