From the organizer:

The project screening five short documentaries from film making courses held in Hanoi over the past decade. Departing with the thought of “old”, the series explores intergenerational dialogue around the concepts: old and new, past and present, young and old. Many contemplations as well as queries about time, memories and heritage are opened from cinema – a method of communication for young filmmakers.

The program was initiated and organized by students of the Film Curriculum course of TPD Center, under the framework of “Like the Mooon in a Night Sky”, a series of events revolving around Vietnamese movie industry in the past, present and future.

All films showing at the event feature English subtitles.
