HA NOI — Director Bui Thac Chuyen will screen his film Choi Voi (Adrift) at several American universities from Sunday.
At the invitation of the New York-based Institute for Vietnamese Culture and Education, Chuyen will also partake in discussions following each showing.
The film will run from April 8 to 15 at eight universities including Yale, Pennsylvania, New York and Princeton.

Adrift, which also won the FIPRESCI prize at the Venice Film Festival in 2011, stars Vietnamese overseas actress Linh Dan Pham, who achieved fame in the Oscar-winning movie Indochine.-VNS
