“Deserted Valley” is one of the most successful films made by well-known Vietnamese female Director Pham Nhue Giang.
The film is considered as a compassionate poem demonstrating the sacrifice of three teachers on their journey to bring education to disadvantaged children of ethnic minorities.
They shared the same passion for children, for teaching and for perseverance in overcoming difficulty to keep a local school open in a remote mountainous province in Northern Vietnam. Apart from portraying their teaching career, the film also demonstrates the intrinsic feelings and emotions of the teachers who have to spend their youth in remote deserted valleys.
Its poetic beauty also lies in a lot of breathtaking natural scenery with high mountains, vast rice fields and interesting local customs of the ethnic minority people.
With “Deserted Valley”, Director Pham Nhue Giang won the 52st Melbourne International Film Festival’s first FIPRESCI and FCCA (Film Critics Circle of Australia) Prize.
The film was released in 2001 with a duration of 1 hour 29 minutes and English subtitles
