チューン・ミン・クイ TRUONG Minh Quý


Born in Buon Ma Thuot, a small city in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Lives and works here and there in the vibrancy of memories and present moments. His narratives and images – between documentary and fiction, personal and impersonal – draw on the landscape of his homeland, childhood memories, and the historical context of Vietnam. In his work, he experiments with combining abstract concept-images with realistic improvisations during shooting. His films have been selected for international film festivals and exhibitions such as Clermont-Ferrand, Oberhausen, Rotterdam, Busan, and Les Rencontres Internationales Paris & Berlin. Alumnus of the Asian Film Academy (Busan International Film Festival) 2012, and Berlinale Talents (Berlin International Film Festival) 2016, and winner of the main art prize at the 20th VideoBrasil, Sao Paulo, in 2017.
