Nguyễn Duy Anh, In Bloom/ Vườn hoa nhà anh Bính, 2019, 13’.

Bính’s family has run a flower farm for a few generations. His flowers bloom under the shadow of the cathedral in front of his house, and to the sounds of gospel songs. Night falls: the film sheds off its cinema verite approach, a cross pollination of dreamlike, artificially manipulated music and images of desire transpires.

Nguyễn Duy Anh (*1997) is a Hanoi-based filmmaker. He graduated from the exchange course in Directing between Hanoi College of Theatre & Cinema and INSAS Art School (Belgium). His short documentary Vườn Hoa Nhà Anh Bính (In Bloom) premiered at the Singapore International Film Festival in 2020 and has since been featured at other local and international festivals. In 2019-2020, Duy Anh released a number of music videos in collaboration with local young artists under the moniker “vudieunongsay.”
