Three documentaries made under a Ford Foundation community-based media project will be screened at Hanoi's Cinematheque on Nov 14.

The three films, made by staff from the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology and VTV5, are:  The Silent Teachers, The Trash Collector Village People in the City and Hiphop My Life.

To produce the films, project participants worked with three different communities in Ha Noi to guide them in finding and expressing the stories they want to tell in their own voices.

The three communities are young people who live to hip hop dance, a group of university students who work as home tutors, and women recyclers from the northern province of Nam Dinh who come to Hanoi to earn a living by trading scrap.

Each film is about 25 minutes long. Some community members and project participants will share their experiences in creating these films before the screenings, presented in Vietnamese with English subtitles.

Tickets are priced from VND50,000 to VND100,000 for adults.
