HA NOI  (VNS) — The 1985 documentary Chuyen Tu Te (Living as One Should) by veteran director Tran Van Thuy will be screened on Sunday at the Heritage Space.

One of Thuy's most distinctive productions, the film is about the fate of poor people and social conflicts.

When it was presented at the Leipzig International Film Festival in 1985, the foreign press hailed it as "a bomb from Vietnam that exploded in the city of Leipzig". The film won the festival's Silver Dove award.

Following the screening, a small talk will be held about Thuy's 2013 book, The Story of Thuy, which recounts all the joys and troubles he went through during his career.

The film will be screened in Vietnamese with English subtitles from 8pm. The talk will be in Vietnamese with English translations. Entry fee: VND80,000 (drink included).

Heritage Space is on the second floor, Dolphin Plaza, 17 Tran Binh Road, My Dinh. ).— VNS
