Vietnam films focus of subversity

Irvine -- Subversity, a public affairs show on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County, continues its focus on matters Vietnamese in this evening's show. We take a look back at UCLA's Vietnam film series, just over, and talk to a director as well as report on the film series. This edition is dedicated to the memory of the people who perished in My Lai 30 years ago this week and also to the memory of Dr. Benjamin Spock, a leading anti-war activist.

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

Subversity airs each Tuesday from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County.
