Synopsis

For fifty-two years, Chanu, a Lahu-Lisu tribal man from northern Thailand, lived an adventurous life packed with danger as well as joy. Slave, farmer, prisoner, hunter, bandit, smuggler, soldier-guerilla, lover, winner, and loser-- Chanu wore many faces. His story spans a fascinating, tumultuous historical period in the infamous Golden Triangle of Southeast Asia. Follow Chanu and witness his life of unusual circumstances in Run for the Mountains. During some fifteen years of working, traveling, hunting and speaking with Chanu in his own language, Gordon Young recorded Chanu’s poignant story and now shares this with the world.
