Cinéma Vietnamien (original title)
A film by Hubert Niogret
The documentary attempts to retrace the major political and industrial aesthetic phases of Vietnamese cinema, through its wars, regime changes, ideological developments, and focusing primarily on the current situation. The documentary is also the reflection of a very dynamic country on the rise and whose lifestyles are profoundly different from the South (the economic capital) and the North (the administrative capital of the central government much more rooted in tradition).
