New Year for the Mien, A
- 1986 ----- color ----- 56 min ----- vhs
Five people from an ancient tribe in Laos, forced to abandon everything--their mountains, their music, their gods, the soul of their tradition--came to the United States. The prices the Mien must pay, the trade-offs they are making, are significant and deep for their small society as well as for ours. Presents an intimate portrait of people struggling to adapt and survive in the vastness of America.
