Here's the trailer for the new independent film The Princess of Laos by Chicago-based African American filmmaker Mychal Mitchell.

The film deals with, as Mitchell describes: "a 13 year old girl Soutchada Pradith (Tabatha Mitchell) who was born in Laos but who comes America to find her biological father. After witnessing a homicide she hires a private investigator, an ex-cop, to help her find him. The investigator is a former police officer who left the department because of misconduct. He is a suspect in the homicide by the police because of his past. The two are eluding the police, running from a killer while looking for the girl's father film that combines for the first time in film history African American and Laotian cultures."

Mitchell plans to take the film on the film festival curcuit before a hopeful distribution deal.

    How is it that there is no website for this film, or the filmmaker? I would love to support, but how can I if there is no information out there.
