The trailer for Camera, Camera.

Camera, Camera is a stunning new documentary that shows Laos through the beauty and confusion of a traveler's lens. The directorial debut of award-winning cinematographer Malcolm Murray, the film was written and features interviews by noted journalist and author Michael Meyer, and was produced by Peabody award-winning New York Times staff photographer Josh Haner. The film explores the implications of travel photography and traveling itself. People young and old arrive in Laos to discover and document a new world- both fragile and deceptively brutal. In ancient temples, in jungles, on rivers, in mountain villages, their flashes go off and moments are trapped forever. What does it mean to take a photograph in such a place? What do we wish to capture? And what do we find instead? Throughout Camera, Camera, Murray and Meyer recreate the experience of traveling. We see beautiful things, wonderful things, and horrible things - all strange and new. We see what the travelers see and discover what they don't see as the plot moves deftly from the comical to the taboo, reveling in the experience of Laos, and lingering on things left unsaid. Camera, Camera is a documentary for anyone who has taken a photograph in a foreign country. The film quietly calls upon viewers to ponder the multifaceted and often ambiguous impacts of travel and photography on citizens of two worlds. Featuring music by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, James Blackwell, and Explosions in the Sky.
