About Finding Phong + Q&A

Part intimate video diary and part traditional documentary, Finding Phong spans more than a year in the life of Lê Ánh Phong, a twentysomething transwoman from a small village in Vietnam. Phong is living and studying in Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi, as she begins her transition. After she returns to her home from an initial trip to Thailand and begins taking hormones, Phong slowly comes out of her shell and learns that becoming a woman involves far more than hormones and surgery.

The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with Lê Ánh Phong.

Screening as part of the Star Nhà Ease: Vietnamese Cinema season, presenting a captivating collection of Vietnamese cinematic treasures. Co-curated by Cường Minh Bá Phạm, Esther Johnson and Tuyết Vân Huỳnh, this season is both a celebration and introduction of Vietnamese cinema to UK audiences.
