Who is Tran Van Thuy?

Trần Văn Thủy is an acclaimed Vietnamese documentary film director. He has directed over 20 short documentary films.

His work has often proven controversial; his 1987 film The Story of Kindness or How to Behave, which dealt with the legacy of the Vietnam War and the suffering of the Vietnamese and American people in that conflict, was banned for a time by the Vietnamese government. Nonetheless, his reputation as a gifted filmmaker resulted in the Vietnamese government commissioning him a decade later to create a followup to the film, The Sound of the Violin in My Lai.
