From Friends of Heritage:

Friends of Vietnam Heritage (FVH) would like to present to its members the screening of “When the autumn sunlight comes” or “Khi nắng thu về” – produced by Director Bui Trung Hai.

When Autumn Sun Returns is, at heart, a story about growing up, stuffing up, and trying to make good in a harsh world.

We first meet Trung in Autumn in a very recognisable modern-day Hanoi. He is young and confident, even a little reckless. Why shouldn’t he be? He has a beautiful girlfriend and just got himself a dream job as a TV presenter. But a quick succession of very believable events throws his life in to disarray. With help, he manages to pick himself up and dust himself off, only to fall again.

Over the course of one formative year in Trung’s life, the film oscillates in this way between good and bad developments – including an awakening of some dark elements in Trung (reminiscent at times of Deniro in ‘Taxi Driver’). His life is balanced on a knife-edge. How will he end up by the time Autumn returns?

This movie won the Gold Remi Award for First Feature Film at the 41st Houston Film Festival (USA – 2008), and was one of 5 Nominations for Best Feature Film at the 4th biennale Vietnam International Film Festival (Irvine, Los Angeles, USA – 2009).

Language: Vietnamese with English subtitles – run time 103 minutes.

Afterwards will be a question and answer session with Director Mr. Bui Trung Hai.

Cost: 150,000vnd
Limit: 90 participants
