Special Film Screening: The Journey of Vann Nguyen

Mon, November 6, 2006 | ACE 2.302

8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

"The Journey of Vann Nguyen" focuses on Vaan Nguyen and her life as an Israeli-born Vietnamese. Her father was one of the many "boat-people" who fled Vietnam after the fall of Saigon in 1975 and one of the few who were given asylum in the "Land of the Jews". Now, when the time has come to go back home, they both leave to Vietnam, hoping they can reclaim their confiscated lands. Their journey becomes a parable on loss of identity and on the fate of refugees.
