Time: 6:00 pm Saturday 5th November 2011
Location: Goethe Insititut 56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Hanoi
“From Hollywood to Hanoi chronicles the efforts of the director Tiana Thi Thanh Nga, a Vietnamese-born American actress, who returns to the country of her birth to try and come to grips with her personal history and the history of Vietnam’s recent past. In the course of her many trips between 1988 and 1991 Tiana managed to interview important dignitaries in the unified government of the country, track down relatives and interview survivors of the My Lai massacre. Although she was the daughter of South Vietnamese notables, she doesn’t hesitate to use archival footage showing the brutality of the war the West waged to keep the country divided.”
Released in 1992; Sundance, Teluride and numerous other international film festivals.
In English and Vietnamese with subtitles for both.
Cinematographer Jamie Maxtone-Graham will be in attendance.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
