A scene from the Vietnamese movie "Nuoc 2030" about the country after the seas rise and inundate it, which will open the Berlin Film Festival

“Nuoc (Water) 2030” by award-winning Vietnamese-American director Nguyen Vo Nghiem Minh kicks off the Panorama section of the prestigious Berlin Film Festival in Germany on February 6.

Adapted from novel “Nuoc nhu nuoc mat” (Water like tear) by Nguyen Ngoc Tu, the film is about a place in future Vietnam, where global warming and rising seas have forced cultivation onto floating farms and a strong woman has to make a critical decision about her ex-lover, a suspect in her husband’s murder.

The movie does the gamut of science fiction, thriller, and romance and will be screened from February 6 to 14.

This year's Berlin Film Festival, from February 6 to 12, will see the participation of 20 films besides actors and filmmakers from more than 50 countries.

Seventeen movies are entered in the competition for the Golden Bear and Silver Bear awards.
