Trailer for The Rocket.
Set against the lush backdrop of rural Laos, this spirited drama tells the story of scrappy ten-year-old Ahlo, who yearns to break free from his ill-fated destiny. After his village is displaced to make way for a massive dam, Ahlo escapes with his father and grandmother through the Laotian outback in search of a new home. Along the way, they come across a rocket festival that offers a lucrative but dangerous chance for a new beginning. With the help of his new friend Kia and her eccentric, James Brown-loving uncle, Ahlo sets out to build his own rocket, enter the contest and prove his worth to his family.
Australian filmmaker Kim Mordaunt whose documentary Bomb Harvest investigated Laos s status as the most bombed country in the world returned to make this fable-like drama, one of its first internationally released feature films. The Rocket s characters, mostly played by non-professional actors, embody the spirit of resilience and hope born out of a country affected by a legacy of war and undergoing a great economic change.

And now a hundred or so of the young-adult offspring have gotten together to take legal action to reveal the true identity of their father.
A fortysomething slacker's life is turned upside down when he learns that his many sperm donations have resulted in more than 500 children.
