The movie titled “The Unburied Sounds of a Troubled Horizon” directed by Tuan Andrew Nguyen will participate in the category of "Undercurrent".
This film is inspired by the people of Quang Tri Province which was one of the most heavily bombed areas in the history of modern warfare.
For multiple generations, its residents have lived with the physical residue and lingering trauma of war.
The film called “Fix Anything” by director Le Lam Vien will compete with 16 other movies in the category of "Southeast Asian Short Film Competition".
The variety and quality of these short films attest to the abundance of strong creative talents from the region.
The “Fix Anything” tells about a father who ropes in his son for exploits using his DIY ‘memory eraser’ van in this sci-fi comedy on their one-night adventure.
The films titled “What the hell” by director Nguyen Thi Xuan Trang and “Fix Anything” have been selected for the “Southeast Asian Film Lab".
The program provides a nurturing and collaborative space for Southeast Asian filmmakers who are embarking on their first feature-length film project.
Young directors will have an opportunity to exchange with professional filmmakers and participate in a speech contest for the “Most Promising Project” and “Fellowship Prize” awards.
