360 De La Thanh, Hanoi

From Okia Cinema:

THE MEETING for all of us!

Alan Gilsenan’s latest work puts the viewers in an unimaginable challenge of a “human situation”.
It is difficult to call this a story, even though it is full of narratives.
It is difficult to call this a documentary, even though it is real life.
A 9-year reality of the 2 main characters.
You might even agree, at one point, that it’s hard to call The Meeting a movie – in most common definition of a movie!
Ailbhe Griffith didn’t want an apology, she wanted “her life back!”
Martin Swan, who just got out of prison for sexual harassment against Ailbhe 9 years ago…, what can he do?
And us, the viewers, when we see ourselves in THE MEETING, in the CONFRONTATION… what can we do?

90-minute screening with a discussion hosted by film director Nguyễn Hoàng Điệp with our guests – experts: Nghiêm Hoa, Lương Thế Huy, Đặng Hoàng Giang… will dig deeper into the issues that THE MEETING brings about.
