The Friends of Vietnam Heritage (FVH) will present the FVH Film Night on April 20.
The event, which will take place at the Seven Café, 3A Ngô Quyền Street, from 7.30pm to 9pm, will present three shorts movies Giường Xinh (Beautiful Bed) by director Hà Lê Diễm, Mùa Hè, Nghiêm (Summer Attention) by Lê Thu Minh, and Bánh Bao Bikes by Brenda Mattick.
Beautiful Bed is about two youngsters, who leave a northern town and go to the South to work in a furniture store. Despite hardships in work and life, they never stop nurturing dreams for their families.
Summer Attention is about a summer activity class led by An, who is a young party member. He longs to create healthy and respectable activities for children in the immigrant village.
The last movie is about Mr Tuấn, vice president of the Hà Nội Vintage Bicycle Club, who runs a busy fried dumpling street food stall. Mr Tuấn reflects on the hard times of previous decades, when bicycles cost more than houses. His father had a bicycle, but he never let Tuấn or his other six children touch it because it was their only form of transport and was a precious asset.
All the movies will be presented with English subtitles. After the screening, there will be a short Q&A session with the directors.
