Let's Love

Let's Love tells the story of Mai, a young Laotian lesbian struggling to find acceptance and love in a socially conservative society that is not open to her sexual orientation. Through Mai's complex relationships with her family, friends and wider society, LET's LOVE illuminates the many obstacles currently facing the LGBTQI community in Laos, making it the first film of this kind ever made in the Laotian context.

Mai’s struggle is made worse by the pressure from parents on both sides of her relationships. In the short film these details are approached with great sensitivity at the same time exposing a reality in a highly conform society. Mai’s journey moves from the capital in Laos to the rural area to forget and start afresh. As she finds new love, next Mai encounters emotionally deeply unsettling times in a world that seems to reject Mai for who she really is, a young man trapped in a female body."
