Four short films made under noted actress Hong Anh's film project called 89600 km + premiered on October 11 at the Megastar Cinema in Ho Chi Minh City's District 7.

 

The name of Anh's project is derived from the total length of traffic routes in Vietnam as per last year's figures.

 

Anh and her company, Blue Productions, are carrying out the project to support the development of young filmmakers in Vietnam.     

 

Four shorts films - Chuyen tao lao (Idle talks,) Tinh anh ban chuoi (Love of the banana seller,) Nguoc chieu (Contrariwise,) and Xe om (Motorbike taxi,) have been chosen from 29 scripts that applied for production.

 

Among the four works, Xe om is the only documentary. It features the life of a woman who has been a motorbike taxi driver for 20 years at a bus station.

 

After the premiere, Blue Productions will finance the marketing of these four films, including presenting them at national and international film festivals.
