A Dream in Hanoi (UNAFF for Seniors)
A unique alliance takes place between former adversaries, the United States and Vietnam during the staging of the first performance of Shakespeare’s play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in Vietnam.
A Dream in Hanoi documents the preparations in mounting the play as the members of the two theatre companies, one American, the other Vietnamese, juggle not only the creative exertions of putting on a play but also face the history of a recent war along with the huge obstacles of different cultures, languages and ideologies.
A Dream in Hanoi is the first American documentary about American/Vietnamese relations that does not focus on the Vietnam war or its legacy of human suffering.
