Oh, Saigon- Wednesday, February 6th
On the last day of the Vietnam War, Doan, age 3, and her family, are airlifted out of Vietnam. Now looking back, Doan attempts to recover her family’s divided past. A father reunites with his brother years after fighting against him in the war that tore them apart. A daughter is left behind after the war and confronts the mother that abandoned her. Their lives are the direct effect of gut decisions, and how a war lingers on long after the fighting stops. We also see a deep willingness to survive in the face adversity and the ability for human beings to heal and evolve after great suffering and strife.
All screenings are at the Regal Arbor Cinema at Great Hills
