VIETNAMERICA is a ninety (90) minute full length documentary that is not just for Vietnamese, but is for anyone who loves and cherishes freedom and liberty
Synopsis:
"After the Vietnam War, over 2 million Vietnamese people fled their homeland in search of freedom. Hundreds of thousands died even before reaching their destination. Forty years later, "VIETNAMERICA" follows martial arts Master Hoa Tien Nguyen’s return to Southeast Asia to search for the graves of his wife and two children. Having escaped on a boat with 75 of his family and friends, Hoa is the lone survivor. Throughout his return, Hoa and a diverse group of Vietnamese survivors as well as historical scholars explore the reasons for the Vietnamese diaspora. Today, Vietnamese Americans are the largest political refugee group in the United States".


 

Master Nguyen’s story in VIETNAMERICA was submitted to international film festivals as a short 18-minute film titled MASTER HOA’S REQUIEM. To date, it has been selected for screening at 15 film festivals throughout the world. MASTER HOA’S REQUIEM has won several awards, including the Special Jury Remi Award, The Best Texas Production from WorldFest in Houston, Texas, and The Best Texas Production from the Dallas International Film Festival. VIETNAMERICA has also been screened in Fountain Valley, California, Houston, Texas, and at The Marian Days 2015 in Missouri.
