Orange County's Year-Round Film Festival

Saigon in the Rain

Join the Vietnamese American Arts and Letters Association for Saigon in the Rain, playing as part of Viet Film Fest 2021! Viet Film Fest, the largest Vietnamese film festival outside of Vietnam, will present virtual streaming on-demand and in-person drive-ins to meet audiences across the country and worldwide!

Directed by Vietnamese filmmaker Le Minh Hoang, the film follows the story of two unlikely lovers living in Saigon. Vu, a young man, dreams of becoming a successful musician, while May is a more-grounded girl who simply wants to make ends meet. Through their interaction with each other though, the two begin to question their own assumptions about life and happiness.

All proceeds from this screening will go to SAP-VN for COVID relief in Vietnam. Visit vietfilmfest2021.eventive.org/welcome and follow @vietfilmfest on IG and FB for more information!
