A FILM BY PHUONG - 5Minutes
BY TRIEU THI LAN PHUONG
The emotion that came from a certain period, a phase, a moment... Could it be bad? Could it be good enough to be given a name? But it was enough for me to look back and understand that I used to be that way.
THE GARDEN - 1OMinutes
BY DOAN HOANG KIEN
The garden is someone with whom I can share even the most personal memories. Memories which I have been yearning and looking for all my life. Memories which helped me to eventually realize that for me, childhood simply never existed.
TRAIN JOURNAL- 7Minutes
BY TRAN THANH HIEN
When I was shooting on the train, it felt like I was sliding the camera along with the dolly. I just stood there and observed everything around me. These train journeys always remind me of my childhood memories and at the same time, help me get in tune with the life taking place outside and right in front of my lens- one full of joy and sorrow.
BY NGO THANH
I'm 24 years old. My writing often focuses on gender issues. This pushes me to never stop questioning the authenticity of teh values which society has imposed on genders, as well as the limits and conflicts within myself. It seems all information that I've been absorbing from films, books and everything else makes me who I am. And it's all fiction.

According to the masters of the Mother Goddess religion, the religion itself must always remain in its original essence. Most of them are middle aged or old people. Trung, a youngster born in the 90s has a totally different point of view. For him, the religion needs to be simplified, just like life itself. Although Trung has a different way of serving the spirits, he always tries to maintain the solemnity of the religion. His biggest wish is for society to properly accepth him as who he really is- a medium.
