Saigoneer Podcast: The Evolution of Contemporary Vietnamese Cinema

A new episode is available now!

A few weeks ago, we discussed depictions of Vietnam from foreign filmmakers and studios. Today (0:55), we dig into the themes and improving quality of domestically produced movies like Song Lang, Goodbye Mother, Furie, and Good Morning and Good Night.

What do these movies reflect about Vietnamese society, and what do we hope to see from local movies in the future?

As always, we end with Bánh Mỉ Banter (34:54).
