Par-delà une nuit sans lune
(BEYOND A MOONLESS NIGHT)
by Thi Be Nguyen and Marie-Hélène Panisset
ORIGINAL VERSION WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Forty years after fleeing the Vietnam War through Laos, a Canadian refugee Boat People (Thi Be Nguyen) returns to her roots by going to find an elderly aunt left behind with whom her family had lost contact. This moving reunion is the occasion for a voyage of discovery in search of identity through the country of origin but also through Laos and Cambodia which, with Vietnam, once made up French Indochina. Through encounters with ordinary people with extraordinary backgrounds, the film weaves together decades of colonization and the outbreak of war in this region of the world. Vietnam is more than the Vietnam War, it is 4000 years of history!
