Who is Luu Huynh?
He worked as a director for the Vietnamese diaspora variety show Paris by Night, which is banned in Vietnam. In 1997, a segment he directed accompanying a song by Trinh Cong Son generated much controversy among overseas Vietnamese because it allegedly depicted South Vietnam during the Vietnam War in a negative light.
His 2007 film The White Silk Dress has been highly acclaimed. Thus far, it has won the Audience Award at the Pusan International Film Festival in South Korea, the Kodak Vision award at the Fukuoka Asian Film Festival in Japan, and the highly coveted "Best foreign film" award at the Golden Rooster Awards in China.
