A Vietnamese film, entitled ‘Glorious time in Me Thao Hamlet’, was screened in the Arthur M.Sackler National Museum for Asian Art in Washington on December 2, marking the beginning of a Vietnamese film week taking place through December 18.
The cultural week, which will feature another four films by famous Vietnamese directors, including Doi Cat (Sand Life), Vua Bai Rac (Rubbish Dump’s King), Cua Roi (Lost and Found) and Thung Lung Hoang Vang (Deserted Valley) together with the documentary ‘Nhung Nguoi Ban Do Gom’ (Ceramic Sellers) and short film ‘Hanh Trinh Xich Lo Dem’ (Night Cyclo Tour), will offer an opportunity for the American people to better understand Vietnamese history, culture, and people.
After the last film show on December 18, the audience will have a chance to exchange views with female film director Pham Nhue Giang about her film ‘Deserted Valley’.
The event is co-organised by the Vietnamese Embassy in the US, the Vietnamese Film Department and the Ford Foundation.
