The Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents (TPD) will on Saturday present the movies Before Sunrise and Before Sunset by director Richard Linklater.
The 1995 romantic drama Before Sunrise follows Jesse Wallace (Ethan Hawke), a young American, and Celine (Julie Delpy), a young French woman, who meet on a train and disembark in Vienna, where they spend the night walking around the city getting to know each other.
Before Sunset, released in 2004, picks up the story of the couple nine years after they first met, when their paths intersect again resulting in an afternoon together in Paris. The movie was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Before Sunrise will be screened from 2pm, followed by Before Sunset at 4pm, at the TPD, Level 4, 51 Tran Hung Dao Street.
On June 19, the FVH will also host a movie screening of The Neighborhood Leader and The Youth at Ha Noi Cinematheque, 22A Hai Ba Trung Street.
The two documentary films are results of training courses conducted by the French Ateliers Varan Association – an association of filmmakers who run non-academic hands-on courses in documentary filmmaking both in France and across the world.
Since 2004, six courses have been led by Varan in Ha Noi, HCM City and Da Nang. The films made by Varan students have subsequently been shown many times in Viet Nam and around the world.
Next Wednesday's screening will present two films produced by Varan students in Viet Nam. To join the screening, contact Hang at: FVH.Films@gmail.com. Cost: VND150,000.-VNS
