Directed by Bao Nguyen
EMPLOYED IDENTITY explores the phenomenon of Vietnamese abroad returning to the country of their parents’ birth, to find both themselves and successful careers. Today, many of these Vietnamese abroad, or “Viet Kieu,” are leaving the recessive economies of their adopted homelands to seek new opportunities in Vietnam. The series touches upon a range of topics such as identity, unemployment, minority portrayal in entertainment, familial relationships, and the emerging art and film scene in Vietnam. This year’s EMPLOYED IDENTITY features Ham Tran, director and writer of HOLLOW, a feature film filled with horror and vengeance.
