Mê phim - passionate about films and Sàn Art Laboratory are pleased to present a film event this time at Déjà Vu Cafe Two short films by two film makers one in Vietnam, one from Australia who bring two stories from two different geographical locations, but showing the same concerns about family life of Vietnamese.

Ngoc Tien narrates nightlife in Saigon with her short documentary, brings faces to the screen that might be familiar to those who have been accquainted with Saigon nights, and for those who are not, the movie clip could make them look closer while being and travelling on streets when citylight is on.

Tony with the perspective of previous generation introduces a short film with a supposed to be out of date topic but is always the concern of the Vietnamese no matter ones are away home or on the land: family. Come see and chat with the film makers at this friendly special film event. Uong Ngoc Tien is a young film maker studying at Theater and Film College of HCMC.
