The Rocket

The Rocket

Directed by Kim Mordaunt

A blazingly original drama about how a boy, a James Brown impersonator, and a cylinder full of explosives can overcome any obstacles life puts in their way. 10-year-old Ahlo, cursed with bad luck, leads his family and a handful of misfits through Laos to find a new home. After a calamity-filled journey through a land scarred by war, to prove he’s not really cursed, he builds a giant rocket to enter the most lucrative but dangerous competition of the year: the Rocket Festival.
