The Institute for Vietnamese Culture & Education (IVCE) is pleased to announce the premiere of a new Vietnamese film

CANH DONG BAT TAN (FLOATING LIVES)
directed by NGUYEN PHAN QUANG BINH


.

Synopsis:

Set in the exquisitely beautiful Mekong Delta of Vietnam, the film tells the story of Mr. Vo and his daughter Nuong and his son Dien. Vo, a man wounded by his wife’s infidelity, has burned down his house and all his memories of the past. He has restarted his life with his two children, living a nomadic existence on a boat among the labyrinthine canals of the Mekong. He is an exile not because of the war- now only a distant memory in Vietnam-but from the modern life and materialism that he sees as the cause of his wife’s giving in to the temptations of self-indulgence.

Twisted and made bitter by her betrayal, Vo takes revenge by using his attractive looks to cruelly abuse all women who fall in love with him, and at times even the daughter who looks more and more like her mother as she grows up. Vo becomes a man who cannot see love, while his son and daughter become emotionally twisted, inheriting their father’s hatred, distrust and coldness. It is only when the children rescue Suong, a prostitute, from being beaten by a mob of outraged women and, in spite of their father, take her into their life and form a surrogate family around her, that Suong’s physical and spiritual healing allows the children-and perhaps their father-to have their own healing, and their own reconciliation with love.

Based on Nguyen Thi Ngoc Tu’s best selling short story "Canh Dong Bat Tan" (Boundless Rice Field), winner of the best short story prize from the Vietnam Writer’s Association in 2007 and more recently of the ASEAN Literature Award, “Floating Lives” will draw audiences into the colorful daily life of unsophisticated peasants who scratch out a living in the beautiful but unforgiving landscape of the immense, mysterious and prescient Mekong Delta, into the lives of characters whose strength, flaws, and beauty, portrayed as they search for the sustenance of life and love, tear at one’s heart.
