A Dream in Hanoi

Wed 02 Dec, 7.30 pm

FVH would like to invite you to the screening of ‘A Dream in Hanoi’, a 16-minute short film directed by Gerry Herman. A lonely boy’s life is changed forever when he meets a ballet dancer on the streets of Hanoi. This is the true story of how Cao Chi Thanh (star of Vietnam Opera- Ballet National) was inspired to start studying ballet at the age of 11.

We will also be showing clips from recent Vietnam Opera – Ballet National (VNOB) performances. The director, Gerry, will be in attendance to answer any questions as well as the director of the VNOB, several VNOB dancers, and the vice-director of the National Ballet School.


Price: 100,000VND

  1. Hello Gerald, If you recall your meeting an independent film maker from India – we met in Hanoi in March 2012 . You were kind enough to give me a dvd copy of your wonderful film A Dream in Hanoi. Congratulation. It’s a beautiful film. I had shown it to many of my friends in Delhi – they loved your film. I lost your email id hence couldn’t contact you. I hope this note reaches you. Wishing you all the best.
