First-time Filmmakers Vietnam

FIRST TIME FILMMAKERS VIETNAM explores the country’s rapid urban transition through the unique visions of each filmmaker. Stories include the efforts of a group of “jam busters” who attempt to battle Hanoi’s notorious traffic congestion, a self-styled storyteller who captures the imagination of his audience with little more than ingenuity and the most basic of tools, the evolution of the urban landscape of Hanoi as the city celebrates its millennium anniversary, and an ancient reburial ritual that is at risk of disappearing.
