HCM CITY (VNS) — Independent film director Luong Dinh Dung's first feature film, Cha Cong Con (Father Carries Son) is being shot this week in Ha Giang Province.

The film features the short life of Ca, a boy living in a fishing village who has a life-threatening disease. His father, Moc, a poor fisherman, works hard to earn money to pay his medical bills.

"My film is for Vietnamese fathers. I hope it will leave a strong impression on audiences through its stories, images and music," said Dung, in a recent interview with Dien Anh Viet Nam (Viet Nam Cinematography) magazine.

As a graduate of the Ha Noi College of Theatre and Cinematography, he has worked for private and State-owned film companies and studios. — VNS
