Super 8mm, 2006.
Kieu, loosely translated as "foreign,” is the name given to thousands of refugees and their children who have journeyed “home”. We follow the voices of three Viet-Kieu (Vietnamese living abroad) to Vietnam as they navigate the geographic, linguistic and economic distance between themselves and their "homeland." The camera too becomes a voice in this cinematic journey, the embodiment of a question, a kinesthetic quest for the meaning of being and belonging.
