The film will reveal the past, giving viewers an opportunity to follow in the footstep of Ho Chi Minh when he was a young patriot with a burning desire to find a way to liberate the nation.
The film crew spent months and went abroad to seek documents and images for the film, said Khanh, adding that many scenes were shot in the U.S. and China to create the truthfulness for the documentary.
