HÀ NỘI — A documentary film about the late Laos President Suphanouvong was transferred from the Việt Nam Cinema Association to a museum in Vientiane on Thursday.
The film was delivered to the Kaysone Phomvihane museum on the occasion of the 109th birthday of the late President.
Entitled Suphanouvong President with Việt Nam, the film is a reflection of the life, career and notable architectural works of President Suphanouvong during his time in Việt Nam.
It highlights the relationship of the President with Việt Nam and his contributions to the two countries’ revolutions.
It also recreates the historic meeting between Suphanouvong and the late President Hồ Chí Minh in September, 1945 and his escape from Phonkheng prison in Vientiane in July, 1959.
The documentary was filmed in April, 2017 on the 55th anniversary of the establishment of Việt Nam – Laos diplomatic relations and the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Friendship Contract between the two countries.
During a meeting with representatives from the Việt Nam Cinema Association, Singthong Singhapanya, acting head of the Kaysone Phomvihane museum, expressed his appreciation for the transferal of the film.
“The film will contribute to the museum’s archives of the Việt Nam – Laos relationship and bear a significant meaning to Laos people, especially on the 109th birthday of President Suphanouvong,” he said.
The documentary will be transferred to Laos Television Station and broadcast on the late President’s birthday, he added. — VNS
