Director Mattie Do‘s The Long Walk will soon arrive. Ahead of its release, the new trailer has been unveiled for the genre-bending film.


In The Long Walk,  “An old scavenger living on the fringes of a near-future society exploits a ghostly companion’s ability to traverse time, hoping to prevent his mother’s suffering from a terminal illness.”


The film made its World Premiered to great acclaim at the Venice Film Festival in the Giornate degli Autori section and was followed by praise out of the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s the third feature of Lao based director Mattie Do (Chanthaly, Dearest Sister), whose career has been recognized by the Oldenburg International Film Festival and Locarno International Film Festival for her breakthrough work as Lao’s first and only woman filmmaker, and the only filmmaker of the country to work in the horror and fantasy genres.


A deliberately paced story that burns with intensity and human emotion, The Long Walk is all at once a culturally rich ghost story, a grim near-future sci-fi, and mystery with life and death stakes that spans across decades.


Starring Yannawoutthi Chanthalungsy, Vilouna Phetmany, Por Silatsa, Noutnapha Soydara, Chanthamone Inoudome, and Vithaya Sombath, The Long Walk was written by Christopher Larsen and produced by Do, Larsen, and Annick Mahnert. Justin Diemen and Abhi Rastogi served as executive producers.


The sci-fi mystery is set to open in theaters on February 18, 2022, followed by its arrival on Digital and On Demand on March 1st, from Yellow Veil Pictures.
