From the organizer:

This is PART 2 of our Nôm series (which follows a talk by Dr Trần Đoàn Lâm on Hán-Nôm taking place on 21 Jan)

FVH together with Suzanne Lecht – Director of Art Vietnam Gallery – are planning to screen a short film called “The Art of Nôm”. This will be supported by a presentation from Suzanne and one of the Nôm calligraphy artists will be present.

This beautiful artistic documentary film has been made by filmmaker Bill Perna in collaboration with the Zen’ei Gang of Five (Vietnamese artist/scholars) and Suzanne Lecht. The film talks about Vietnam’s thousand year old script. Zen’ei’s art is inspired by the beauty, heritage and emotion of Nôm characters. The film examines Vietnam’s culture, history, customs, and the social impact of rapid modernization in a changing world.

If you would like to understand more about the academic side of Nom please sign up for the talk with Dr Trần Đoan Lâm on 21 January which will serve as a useful foundation for the film “The Art of Nôm”.

Donation: 250,000 vnd pp which includes a bar after the talk (wine and soft drinks) – people are encouraged to stay on and chat with some of the artists
Limit: 60 pax
