A café in Ho Chi Minh City has been turned into a free art house cinema screening free documentaries through December.

Each documentary will be screened on the last Wednesday of the month at Snap Cafe in District 2.

"Grizzly Man" has been on the screen this week, telling a devastating and heartrending docudrama about amateur bear expert Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard, who were killed by a bear in October of 2003 while living among them in Alaska.

Directed by Werner Herzog, the 2005 film explores their lives as they find solace among these endangered animals.

On Wednesday November 30, James Marsh's "Man on Wire" will be screened. The British film, produced in 2008, shows Philippe Petit walking a tightrope between New York City's twin towers in 1974, what some consider "the artistic crime of the century."

The last Wednesday of the year, December 28, will be saved for the current state of world religion in the US documentary "Religulous" by director Larry Charles.

All the free screenings take place at Snap Café, 32 Tran Ngoc Dien, Thao Dien, District 2.
