Going The Extra Mile

September 4, 2018 Lara Damiani Blog

Think Films was built on the philosophy of going the extra mile because we are genuinely passionate about what we do and who we do it for. Earlier this year, Think Films Producer/Director Lara Damiani released her short film “Little Bang’s New Eye” which she shot, edited and directed over two trips to Hanoi, Vietnam. The story follows three year old Hmong girl Bang as she journeys from her mountain village home to Hanoi for urgent medical treatment for retinoblastoma – a form of eye cancer. The project was a labour of love for Lara who secured the voice of well known Australian actress Kerry Armstrong to narrate the film and the services of talented colleagues who provided post production services to get the film finished and delivered. This year, the film has won two IMPACT Docs Award and an IndieFilmFEST Award, was an official selection at the Indy Film Festival in the USA and recently official selection for DOCS Without Borders.
