Description
Program Description
"A critical look at the economic, social, and cultural changes taking place in Viet Nam today, as seen through the eyes of Hien Duc Do, A Vietnamese-American sociologist returning to Viet Nam for the first time since 1975. The program was shot in Viet Nam in January, 1994, two weeks before the U.S. lifted its twenty year economic embargo. Though the producer had virtually no budget or crew (he ran camera, sound, etc.) except for Hien Duc Do, who acted as interpreter and associate producer, the producer was nevertheless able to take an [in-depth] look at Viet Nam as it struggles to make the transition from socialism to capitalism. The resulting program includes interviews with a broad range of people, from persons engaged in various types of street business to experts, located in both urban and rural environments, in the north (Hanoi) and south (Ho Chi Minh City). To the producer's knowledge, this is the first comprehensive look at Viet Nam today (including Network broadcasts[)] and has been widely shown on various PBS stations to very positive audience acclaim."--1994 Peabody Awards entry form.
