The trailer for “Yellow Flowers On The Green Grass,” the latest film from prolific Vietnamese American filmmaker Victor Vu was released late last week.

Following up the director’s period action drama “Bloodletter (2012)” (Thiên Mệnh Anh Hùng) and horror blockbuster, "Vengeful Heart (2014)” (Quả Tim Máu), Vu will try to replicate his success with this social drama set in 1980s rural Vietnam.

An adaptation of Nguyen Nhat Anh’s best-selling novel I See Yellow Flowers Upon The Green Grass, the film is being produced by Vietnam’s Galaxy Media & Entertainment with the collaboration of the Film Department under Vietnam’s Ministry Of Culture.

The movie follows the story of two brothers who share everything, including their affection for the same girl. It will be one of the first Vietnamese films that is set in the period between the end of the American War and the Doi Moi reforms that would lead to the country’s economic boom.

It is scheduled to be released in theatres later this year.
