|A scene in the film Long Thanh Cam Gia Ca (The Fate of a Songstress in Thang Long).
The movies are Long Thanh Cam Gia Ca (The Fate of a Songstress in Thang Long) by Dao Ba Son, Nguoi Thap Lua (The Burner) by Nguyen Nhu Vu, Dao Ly Son (Ly Son Island) by Cong Thanh Duc and Chiec La (Leaf) by Hong Son.
This year’s 54th film fest attracts 18 countries and territories competing in 3 categories including featured film, documentary and short film.
Days of Rain (Tage des Regens), directed by German director Andreas Hartmann, documents the life of a Vietnamese family as they try to build a new home outside of the local flood lands. Hartmann’s film shows its uniqueness through his approach to communication in documentary filmmaking, where the camera was used to communicate as well as record. Hartmann revealed in a post-screening question-and-answer session that he had spent four weeks shooting in Vietnam without an interpreter. Furthermore, when he returned to Germany, his translator wouldn’t go through all of the footage because of time constraints. This left Hartmann in a strange position, forcing him to cut his footage in half, from 30 to 15 hours, without being able to understand the language spoken in each scene. Ultimately, he used his memories of feelings at the time and his subjects’ facial expressions in order to make judgements about content and importance.
