A scene in “Mua oi” (guava season) movie by director Dang Nhat Minh.


As part of the Vietnam Year in France, the program will feature 36 movies and documentaries, with 31 of them directed by 24 locals.

The movie “Mua oi” (guava season) will open the event with the presence of director Dang Nhat Minh. The event will screen works by many generations of Vietnam’s directors, including “Chom va Sa” (Chom and Sa) by Pham Ky Nam, “Canh dong hoang” (wild rice field) by Hong Sen, “Chi Dau” by Pham Van Khoa, “Dat thuoc ve ai” (to whom the land belongs) by Doan Hong Le, “Trong hay ngoai tay em” (In or out of my hands) by Tran Phuong Thao and “Chuyen di cuoi cung cua chi Phung” (the last trip of Mrs. Phung) by Nguyen Thi Tham.

A highlight of the event is a screening session for the movie “Hai the gioi” (two worlds) made in France in 1953 by Pham Van Nhan. Nhan, 95, who was a poet, now lives in the southern region of France. He was together with artist Mai Thu to make a historical film about late President Ho Chi Minh who had an official visit to France in 1946.

Nhan was also the first Vietnamese to make an independent movie, “Trang nhat ky” (a paper of diary), in 1948 after the independence of the country. His works included “Gia hanh phuc” (the price for happiness), and “Vi dau nen noi” (what happened). All of these four movies are restored by Archives Francaises du film in France.

On the occasion, Yda Club, a hub for those who love Vietnam’s movies that debuted in Paris in 2008, will hold a discussion on the current situation and perspective of Vietnam’s cinema at La Clef theater on June 21.

The organizers will screen the documentary “Dien anh Vietnam, tu thai cuc nay sang thai cuc khac” (different angles of Vietnam’s cinema) by French director Hubert Niogret and the short film “Cuc than” (a piece of coal) by Le Bao from the international online film festival YxineFF 2013. Audiences will have a chance to exchange with directors Hubert Niogret, Dang Nhat Minh, Viet Linh and Tran Anh Hung.
