NETWORK OF ENTERTAINING ASIAN AMERICAN TALENT
MOVIES THAT MADE A DIFFERENCE
FREE ADMISSION (Donations welcome)
We kick off Movies that Made a Difference: The Living Room Series presented by Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, with Tony Bui’s multi-award winning THREE SEASONS. Set in modern Saigon, THREE SEASONS questions the consequences of a rapidly changing Vietnam on its people and culture. We meet the young Kien An, hired to pick lotuses for leprosy-ridden old poet Teacher Dao. Cyclo driver Hai falls for Lan, a proud young prostitute with lofty ambitions. And Woody, a street urchin, crosses paths with Hager, an American veteran searching for the daughter he left behind during the war.
Born in Vietnam and trained in Los Angeles, Tony Bui made history when THREE SEASONS captured both the Grand Jury Award and the Audience Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.
