HA NOI (VNS) — An independent filmmaking team is raising funds to make a documentary on Zone 9, a defunct arts and entertainment hub in downtown Ha Noi.
Zone 9 operated for six months last year and became a hub for artists and young people before a fire led to the death of six construction workers and authorities shut it down, citing safety concerns.
Located inside an abandoned pharmaceuticals plant at 9 Tran Thanh Tong Street, facing the French colonial era Pasteur Park, the complex included five buildings dating back to the 1960s.
The team, which consists of director Nguyen Anh Thu, producer Gabriel Hernandez and editor Bui Thac Chuyen, hopes to collect around US$5,000 by August 25. — VNS
