Director Vu Xuan Hung's Misfortune's End will be showing (together with veteran filmmaker Dang Nhat Minh's Hanoi--Winter, 1946) at the upcoming Newport Beach International Film Festival. Vu's film is about a woman weaver standing up for her rights; and Dang's film is about how Ho Chi Minh spent those months at the end of 1946 trying to avoid war but in the end evacuating Hanoi and beginning the thirty-year war against the French (and later, the Americans). We will also bring you excerpts from discussions about the films. The films are part of an Asian Cinema Kaleidoscope at Newport Festival in Orange County beginning Friday next week. The schedule is listed on the Web at www.mrhm.com/~filmfest/nbiff/main/00_index.html
