The award-winning Australian comedy Bran Nue Dae will be screened in Ho Chi Minh City on February 13 to mark the fourth anniversary of Australia saying sorry to the "Stolen Generations" and indigenous Australians.

The event is organized by the Australian consulate in the city. The National Apology was issued by the former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd on 13 February 2008.

Australian consul John McAnulty said Bran Nue Dae is a "charming new Australian-based, music-driven comedy which centers on the romantic adventures of a young aboriginal couple set against a spectacularly beautiful Australia."

The 2010 film, which depicts Australian indigenous culture, traditions, and humor, has won numerous awards, including the Melbourne International Film Festival Award and Audience Award for Best Feature Film.

It will be screened at the Youth Cultural House, 4 Pham Ngoc Thach street, District 1.
