MORE ABOUT THE FILM:
Working Title: Three Rapes: A daring and very personal follow-up to Oh, Saigon about women and violence in director Đoan Hoàng’s family. Three women who escaped Vietnam at the end of and after the Vietnam War address their experiences with rape. Hoàng’s aunt, Yên, was sexually assaulted as a teenager in a refugee camp by a camp-assigned sponsor and is now a high-class prostitute in San Francisco at the end of her career. Her volatile relationship with Hoàng’s mother, Anne, an imposing and traditional woman, is explored. Hoàng’s sister, Vân, agrees to share the remarkable story of her rape and survival when she was kidnapped by Thai pirates in the Gulf of Thailand. Hoàng herself deals with her own past rape as a teenager growing up in Kentucky, resulting in an unwanted pregnancy, and in her 30s, she interviews a man who raped her. Sisters Vân and Hoàng finally reveal these traumatic experiences to their mother, exploring the commonness and shame of rape in both Asian and American culture. Partially animated, this groundbreaking film breaks taboos around rape and is a sensitive, in-depth, human portrait of both rape victims and perpetrators and the family dynamics that arise from trauma.
