Bach-Hông (2019) [Short]

France (MIFF 2021 )
Director: Elsa Duhamel

A young Vietnamese-French woman is faced with the communist takeover of Saigon on 30 April 1975.

A moving rendition of an animal-loving woman’s life – from her privileged childhood in the 60s to her current life in the French alps – Bach-Hông tenderly documents the loss and grief of war, with its storybook-like hand-watercoloured style only intensifying the depiction of the hardships experienced by subject Jeanne.
