THE FUTURE CRIES BENEATH OUR SOIL (2018)
Mùa Cát Vọng
Surrounded by the surreal landscape of Quang Tri province, four men—Thanh, Hoang, Dinh and Loc, live their lives inseparably from each other. The rhythm of their everyday lives is defined by moments of togetherness in a house with no doors where they all come to drink, smoke, play guitar and sing songs about love and the revolution of the past. Feelings of hatred interweave with compassion, swelling amidst the stagnation of time and space, seemingly awaiting for an unknown. One day, the unknonwn comes and takes one of them away, leaving the others to go on slipping through an undesired life. Meanwhile, the landscape, located in the border between North and South Vietnam, is what lives on, revealing traces of a war that has outlived its conclusion.
