HA NOI (VNS) — The award-winning film Flapping in the Middle of Nowhere will be screened officially in CGV cinemas, starting on January 21.
The independent film was created by Nguyen Hoang Diep. The movie is a lyrical, enigmatic portrait of a young woman at the crossroads of her life. She is confronted by the struggle to make a decision involving her body as she grapples with the confusing nature of love and lust.
The film won international awards including the 2014 Venice International Film Critic's Week. It also won the awards Best Director at the 16th International Film Festival Bratislava in Slovakia and Special Prize at the third Ha Noi International Film Festival (HANIFF).
Director Diep decided to co-operate with CGV cinemas to distribute her first motion picture following its premiere and sold-out screening at the HANIFF last November.
The film screens, part of the CGV project on CGV Art House, were launched today. This project aims to showcase Vietnamese and South Korean art films.
The film will be shown at CGV cinemas in Ha Noi's Ho Guom Plaza and Parkson Paragon in HCM City. — VNS
