Abstract:

This film is an intimate and caring look at the Yiu Mien, Southeast Asian refugees who originally settled in the Pacific Northwest. In their ancient society in the mountains of Laos, this hill tribe had no electricity, cars, or any other twentieth century technology. Their involvement with the CIA during the Vietnam War forced the Mien to lose their homeland. Coming here, they were catapulted from one century into another. Moving Mountains dramatically portrays a people caught between two worlds. Through the words of the elders and rare archival footage of the Mien in their mountain homeland, their ancient culture is brought to light. Moving Mountains vividly portrays the complex realities of adapting to American life with its shopping malls, freeways, and apartment living .A closed captioned version is available. Please specify when ordering.
