A new documentary film on tuồng or hát bội (classical drama) produced by Việt Nam Television will be released in Hà Nội, Cần Thơ and HCM City this month as part of the station’s efforts to introduce Vietnamese culture and theatre to audiences.
Online Lao Động (Labour) newspaper reporter Anh Thư spoke with filmmaker Trần Phương Thảo about independent documentary making.
The pre-teaser of Kiều, a new film based on the 18th-century Vietnamese epic poem Truyện Kiều (The Tale of Kiều), was released on YouTube last weekend.
In April, the movie received a licence to be screened in Việt Nam and was due to premiere on July 31. However, the outbreak of the COVID-19 second wave postponed the schedule.
