Roses & Red Ants
"A people?s spirit can never be broken."

"The dust from bombed megalithic stone urns-covered Plain of Jars and cratered battlefields of sleepy Laos settled over 37 years ago, yet close to a million displaced Laotians--whose suffering from PTSD has echoed down across four decades--still live in fear, hiding from the shame of years past, scattered across five continents far away from their homeland. Roses & Red Ants is an extraordinarily fascinating and never-been-told tale of a country that time has forgotten; a modern day illumination of an old tale and an unequivocal proclamation that a people?s spirit can never be broken. An epic documentary about four Princes and a soldier fighting a Civil War for the soul of Laos, Roses & Red Ants will follow three unique students across sweeping landscapes of America and on globe-trotting scavenger expeditions to excavate the farthest reaches of the minds and deepest chambers of the hearts of its survivors. Theirs is a quest to memorialize the struggle of a people?relegated to a footnote in history; conveniently swept under the rug. This film is an expose of the terrible and hidden secrets of the Laotian Civil War for its lost generation; an attempt to exorcise the shame of years past, to lay bare a conspiracy of silence that exacerbates the lingering wounds of war, and to jump start an overdue conversation about their shared journey toward reconciliation and healing. Roses & Red Ants will explore the universal themes of shame, forgiveness and healing."
