The Long Bien Picture Show is a collection of over 140 photographs and 4 films with the purpose to produce a number of bodies of work in the same place – the Long Bien neighbourhood in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Over the course of the three months, the four photographers (Boris Zuliani, Tran Xiu Thuy Khanh, Barnaby Churchill Steele, Jamie Maxtone-Graham) and four filmmakers (Tran Thi Anh Phuong, Pham Thu Hang, Do Van Hoang, Tran Thanh Hien) were asked only to make works of the things that they responded to as individuals and in the ways they wanted to. There was no effort to create a theme or to impose any meaning, the thought being that in the confusion of ideas and perspectives that there actually might be some better reflection of the place.
All films were made and produced by Hanoi DOCLAB.
Sponsored by the British Council, The Long Bien Picture Show is based partly on a simple observation of the way people make use of a neighbourhood.
