Two Vietnamese films, including “Sinh Menh” (The Destiny in English or Le Destin in French) by director Dao Duy Phuc and screenwriter Nguyen Manh Tuan, and “Chuyen cua Pao” (The Story of Pao in English or L’Histoire de Pao in French) by director and screenwriter Ngo Quang Hai, are being shown there.
Both with French subtitles were produced by Vietnam’s film shop No. 1 in 2006, each running 100 minutes.
“The Destiny” tells about the sacrifices of revolutionary fighters who laid down their life for national independence, freedom and unity.
“The Story of Pao” depicts the life of an H’Mong beautiful girl named Pao in the northwestern mountainous area. It won a Golden Kite award in 2005 and was presented at the Cannes films festival in 2007. During the Francophone film festival, 37 short and long films, documentaries and cartoons selected from 25 countries out of the total 70 countries will be screened in response to the International Day of Francophonie (March 20).
