Lee Phongsvananh

Lee Phongsvananh’s The Signal is a feature film that walks the line between rom-com and sci-fi, focusing on the relationship between Namfon (an underprivileged young woman from a rural town) and a spirit-like figure named Max. Lee has previously won a Lao Filmmakers Fund grant for his short documentary Motion of Life 2 (2014), and co-wrote a 2018 grantee project, Expiration Date, with Anysay Keola. He is a two-time winner of the Vientianale Short Film Festival, and his short film “A Wildlife Move” placed third in LPFF’s American Film Week competition. The Signal will be Lee’s first feature.
