The movie tells the life story of Nguyen Phuc Tan (1620-87), the fourth ruler of the Nguyen Lords, known as a good leader and a military genius, and his tragic love with Thi Thua, a beautiful concubine disdained by his courtiers despite her pure soul.
The film week will take place on October 11-16 in Ha Noi and on October 12-16 in Da Nang. The event aims to connect cultures and foster mutual understanding among APEC member economies through film with the ultimate goal of fostering an Asia-Pacific community of peace, stability, dynamic development and prosperity.
The film week is also intended to raise the profile of the APEC forum among locals while publicising the culture and people of Viet Nam to international friends.
Nine feature films and two documentaries from 11 APEC member economies, including Children of China from China, Blue Moon from Chinese Taipei, My Nhan from Viet Nam, I’m Still Here from Peru, Tsukiji Wonderland from Japan, My Paparotti from South Korea, Nokas from Indonesia, The Age of Pioneers from Russia, Jack of the Red Hearts from the United States, Violeta Went to Heaven from Chile and The Dressmaker from Australia will be screened in the week.
Following the APEC Year 2017 theme of “Creating New Dynamism, Fostering a Shared Future”, the event is held jointly by the National Committee on APEC 2017 and Viet Nam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
The opening ceremony of the APEC Film Week 2017 will take place at 7pm on October 11 at the National Cinema Centre, 87 Lang Ha Street, Ha Noi and on October 12 at Le Do Cinema, 46 Tran Phu Street, Da Nang.
Free tickets for all the screenings can be collected at the two venues beginning today.
