A summer evening at “Pao’s House”

When director Do Thanh Hai was making preparations for the filming of ‘Chuyen Cua Pao’ (Pao’s Story) in 2016, he stopped by Lung Cam Hamlet, Dong Van District, Ha Giang Province. 

Impressed by a century-old house of a H’mong family with well-preserved architecture, Hai decided to choose the house as the venue for the filming of his movie. ‘Pao’s Story’ then won the Golden Kite Award for conveying excellent content and successfully reviving the life of people in the mountainous region.
