Luu Huynh

Film director


Who is Luu Huynh?

Lưu Huỳnh is a Vietnam-born Vietnamese American film director. His family arrived in America when he was 16 years old.

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.

The White Silk Dress has also been officially selected to represent Vietnam at the 80th Academy Awards in the Best foreign language film category.

His latest film, “The Legend is Alive” released in 2009 to wide acclaim won a total of six Golden Kite Awards, including a tie for Best Film.
