Vietnam | 2018 | 90 minutes | Leon Le | In Vietnamese with English subtitles

Set in 1980s Vietnam, this hypnotic drama tells the story of a troubled loan shark, Dung Thunderbolt (Lien Binh Phat), and a traditional Vietnamese opera singer, Linh Phung (V-pop star Isaac), who has assumed the debt of the folk opera company for which he stars. When circumstances bring them together one night, the two discover hidden depths within each other that will change both their lives. Using gorgeous filmography in dreamy detail, the multiple-award-winning SONG LANG weaves fantasy and reality into an emotionally transformative tale.

This film is fully subtitled (deaf-friendly).
