Martina Mikova watched the film at Lucerna Cinema on September 17th, said: “This is a great film. I have never been to Vietnam and know nothing about Vietnam. Today, I watch a film about Vietnam and learn more about the life of Vietnamese people. I love Yen, the main character. She is courageous and dare to fight to protect the happiness of her family, though it is hard to do so.”
The film “Yen’s life”, directed by Dinh Tuan Vu, is about the life of a 10-year-old girl whose marriage was arranged by her parents. The film won five prizes at the 19th Vietnam Film Festival last year. It also won the Grand Festival Prize at the World Premieres Film Festival in the Philippines in July this year.
Vietnamese films introduced during the previous events include “Chuyen cua Pao” (Story of Pao), “Canh dong bat tan” (The Floating Life), “Lua Phat” (Once Upon a Time in Vietnam), and “Dam Me” (Passion).
The festival, themed “ASEAN-One Vision, One Identity,” aimed to bring an insight of the life and people of ASEAN member countries to audiences in the Czech Republic. Running from September 13rd-17th in Lucerna Cinema, the event was sponsored by the host country’s Barrandov film studio and Vietnam Airlines./.
