US Film Fest celebrates Vietnamese drama ‘Father and Son’

VOV.VN - Director Luong Dinh Dung’s ‘Father and Son’ (Cha cong con) took the top jury prize for best foreign feature of the year at the just concluded 2017 Arizona International Film Festival in Tucson.

The story about Father and Son is told in an idyllic way, says director Luong Dinh Dung.

Ca is a young boy who lives with his father in a mountainous area of northern Vietnam. 

After Ca suddenly contracts a life-threatening disease he and his father begin a journey to the city in quest of medical care.

Father and Son is an artistic movie with different spheres of emotions, says Dung. The flow of the story confides my inherent feelings, at the same time of my own way of filmography. 

I believe the filmographic style that follows the emotions exposed in Father and Son is the distinguished feature that the audience relates to and it holds their attention. 

All the cast except for the girl named Xam and a grandfather of a sick boy have not studied any classes or taken any acting courses, and some of them are indigenous Vietnamese, says Dung. 

The film also receives a special jury award for outstanding cinematography.
