Up 200 local artists, doctors, and soldiers have participated in the freshly released music video for "Tự hào Việt Nam", known as “Proud of Vietnam” in English,
a hit that displays the nation’s gratitude to people working on the frontline in the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic.
The video was shot over the course of a month and was filmed in five locations both at home and abroad, including Hanoi, Hai Phong, Ho Chi Minh City, Thailand, and the Truong Sa archipelago, also known as the Spratly islands.
The music video’s director Mai Thanh Tung discussed the inspiration to film comes from the song "Tự hào Việt Nam" composed by Xuan Tri, and has subsequently received support from the Ministry of Health.
Director Mai Thanh Tung says it was no challenge to gather 200 artists, doctors, and soldiers for the purpose of shooting the music video.
By seeing such a large number of participants, the music video represents one of the largest filmed in recent times locally. Indeed, director Thanh Tung notes that there were no difficulties gathering such a crowd, adding that he wants to send a message of community solidarity whilst giving encouragement to all people to combat the pandemic.
