Open Studio: Off Spaces
From Jul 10 to 16, Nha San Collective invite you coming to 15th floor, Hanoi Creative City Building, No1 Luong Yen, Hanoi enjoy Open Studio: Off Spaces
Open Studio: Off Spaces.
Off Spaces is a collaborative visual art project between Nguyen Quoc Thanh and Lukas Zerbst, curated by Bui Kim Dinh that has been being deployed since February 2017. Interested in spaces, myths and legends, the city has opened to Thanh new places with different dimensions of time and spaces that seem to be off those places.
Meanwhile, Zerbst aims to work about the relationship between body and space: accessibility against inaccessibility, inside and outside of a space, as well as space as legal vacuum.
In seven days, the open studio of Off Spaces will reveal two site-specific installations of Zerbst and the exploring and visualizing process of Quốc Thành. During this time, all public opinions and critics will be welcomed. A group discussion will be carried out on the sixth day.
Classic Rom-Coms movie month: “Roman Holiday”
In the third week of the Classic Rom-Coms movie month, you are invited to the screening of Roman Holiday (1953).
Classic Rom-Coms movie month: “Roman Holiday”.
Roman Holiday is directed and produced by William Wyler. It stars Gregory Peck as a reporter and Audrey Hepburn as a royal princess out to see Rome on her own. Hepburn won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance; so did the screenplay and costume design.
It was written by John Dighton and Dalton Trumbo, though with Trumbo on the Hollywood blacklist, he did not receive a credit; instead, Ian McLellan Hunter fronted for him. Trumbo’s credit was reinstated when the film was released on DVD in 2003. On December 19, 2011, full credit for Trumbo’s work was restored. Blacklisted director Bernard Vorhaus worked on the film as an assistant director under a pseudonym.
It was shot at the Cinecittà studios and on location around Rome during the “Hollywood on the Tiber” era. The film was screened in the 14th Venice film festival within the official program.
In 1999, Roman Holiday was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
The film screening is for educational purpose and fundraising for Young Cinema Fund of TPD in 51 Tran Hung Dao Str (4th floor), Hanoi with Language: English with Vietnamese subtitles.
Film Screening “La Grande Illusion”
Come to the film screening “La Grande Illusion” (France, 1937, 95’) at L’Espace, 24 Trang Tien Str., Hanoi. The film was directed by Jean Renoir. Casting: Jean Gabin, Erich von Stroheim, Pierre Fresnay, Dita Parlo, Marcel Dalio
Film Screening “La Grande Illusion”.
A masterpiece by Jean Renoir and Jean Gabin. An unforgettable story about the French and German soldiers during the first World War. A French classic!
During the first World War, two French soldiers are captured and imprisoned in a German P.O.W. camp. Several escape attempts follow until they are sent to a seemingly impenetrable fortress which seems impossible to escape from.
The film, itself, was taken prisoner during the Second World War when the Nazis invaded France and Josef Goebbel’s propaganda ministry seized the original negative. That original was missing for years, but it was not destroyed. It made its way to Russia and ultimately to Toulouse, France, where it was found and restored.
Language: French with Vietnamese subtitles
