Since May, Luna Nguyen of Luna Oi! has been sharing parts of her translation of the 1959 Vietnamese film The Same River (Chung Một Dòng Sông) each month. She has now released all three parts of the film and the subtitles are very readable.
There is very little I could find online in English about the movie, and I haven’t encountered much media at all that explored the war from the Vietnamese perspective. This is a rare treat.
“The Same River” (Chung một dòng sông), the story of a man from the North and a woman from the South who are divided by a river…The Same River – a Communist Love Story from Vietnam! (Part 1)
I put together a playlist, The Same River, to include the three videos.
