We are honored to invite all the teachers and students of Faculty of International Studies (Hanoi University), especially the freshman students of 2013 course to attend the “Hard Rails Across A Gentle River” Movie Show (Long Bien Movie Show). This movie show is a collection of 4 short films with the purpose of creating a series of artworks in the same location – Long Bien neighborhood in Hanoi, Vietnam. This offers a simple look on how people live and utilize the Long Bien area.
For 3 months, 4 photographers (Boris Zuliani, Trần Xiu Thúy Khanh, Barnaby Churchill Steele, Jamie Maxtone-Graham) and 4 directors (Trần Thị Anh Phương, Phạm Thu Hằng, Đỗ Văn Hoàng, Trần Thanh Hiền) were free to choose topics and make films in their own ways.
What is more, two out of four directors will discuss and share with audiences on ideas, experiences, advantages and difficulties during film making process. Especially, IS Students will have friendly talk and discussions with Mr. Jamie Maxtone Graham – Producer of this project. This is a good opportunity for all students to acknowledge more about the society and watch real life’s activities through camera’s lens.
