The film, entitled “The General of the People”, features some of the general’s glorious military victories during the past struggles against foreign invaders, as well as an insight in to his simple daily life.

Though he passed away, his image lives on forever in the hearts and minds of Vietnamese people, shared the film’s director Nguyen Thi Viet Nga.

Nga said she had two opportunities to interview General Giap who had good sentiments towards the media and film-makers. “Like many Vietnamese people, the passing of the legendary General left a deep sorrow in my heart, and this inspired me to make the film,” she confided.

The 50-minute documentary was produced in Hanoi and the central province of Quang Binh – General Giap’s homeland.

Film-makers will continue shooting other localities, including HCM City, Thua Thien Hue, the Central Highlands, and the north-western province of Dien Bien, which is closely attached to General Giap’s resounding victory in Dien Bien Phu battle field./.
