Film Screening “Don’t Burn”
“Don’t burn” was produced in 2009, directed and written by People’s Artist, Director Dang Nhat Minh. The film was based on the diary of the female doctor martyr Dang Thuy Tram, which she wrote from 1968 until 2 days before her death in 1970.
Selecting the facts, war contexts occurring severely described in the diary and its strange journey, the director Dang Nhat Minh and his crew made the film “Don’t burn” to honor doctor Dang Thuy Tram’s and the Vietnamese people’s noble sacrifice for “The dream of peace and independence” of the fatherland. Also, the special journey of the diary over 35 years was also discovered in the film with lots of invaluable stories.
The movie was premiered at the International 19th Annual Fukuoka Film Festival in Japan and won the audience prize. The film was released in late April 2009 in Vietnam and showed at the ASEM international film festival in Hanoi in mid-May 2009. It also won the Golden Lotus in Vietnam Film Festival in 2009 and Golden Kite Award in Vietnam in 2010 with six different prizes.
The film is 100-minute long with English subtitles.
