The film week will be organised on March 9-14 at the National Cinema Centre, Hanoi, and Cinestar Hai Ba Trung, HCM City. Free tickets can be collected at the cinemas.

The films to be presented range from old films such as Bao Gio Cho Den Thang 10 (When Will October Come, 1984), Em Be Ha Noi (Girl from Ha Noi, 1972) and Chi Tu Hau (Mrs Tu Hau, 1963) to films made more recently such as Dung Dot (Don’t Burn, 2009), Toi thay hoa vang tren co xanh (I See Yellow Flowers on Green Grass) and Em Chua 18 (Jaibait, 2017).

The films cover topics like resistance, wartime, life during the doi moi (renewal) era, and modern society. They all received awards and have been honoured at national and foreign film festivals.

For the occasion, the Department of Cinema has also released the film Suoi Dau Nguon (The Headwaters) depicting the efforts of a mobile cinema group to present films for ethnic people in remote areas.

Director Nguyen Anh Tuan said the mobile cinema groups play an important role in bringing knowledge and promoting cultural and spiritual life to people in rural and mountainous regions.

“Thanks to them, people’s lives are enriched and they come closer to the Government’s policy,” he said.

The film stars veteran actor Bui Bai Binh and young actors Nguyen Xuan Luyen and Tran Anh Thu who are unfamiliar faces for audiences.

It will be screened at cinemas nationwide.
