Finding Phong

 

Pacific Northwest Premiere!

 

Over the course of more than a year, we are witness as Phong, a twentysomething trans woman from a small village in Vietnam, eagerly struggles to fully express her truest self—through her own thoughts and in daily life—while she physically transforms from male to female and her friends and family try to make sense of it all. This uplifting film, part intimate video diary and part traditional documentary, was screened at the Vietnam National Assembly, inspiring its members to vote to change the Vietnamese Civil Codes to recognize the rights of transgender citizens. This law will take effect in 2017.  

 

In Vietnamese with English subtitles.

Contains implied sexuality, adult humor and language, homophobia, and transphobia.

Co-presented by Pride ASIA and the Seattle Asian American Film Festival.

 

Run time: 92 min. | Vietnam | 2015
Directed By: Swann Dubus and Tran Phuong Thao
