The highlight of the event is the film Sứ Mệnh Trái Tim (Heart’s Mission) starring Angela Phương Trinh and Võ Cảnh.

Directed by Đỗ Đức Thịnh, it’s a story of young soldiers who take on a mission to detect unexploded ammunition.

The film reflects the young team’s devotion to the community and the love between a soldier and a teacher who volunteer to work in a mountainous region.

The films to be screened include both feature and documentary movies on the topics of war, patriotism, heroes and revolution.

They include Giấc Mơ Thổ Cẩm (Brocade Dream), Cao Hơn Bầu Trời (Higher Than the Sky), Nhà Tiên Tri (The Prophecy), Những Người Viết Huyền Thoại (The Legend Maker), Đừng Đốt (Don’t Burn), and Bác Hồ Với Nông Dân (Uncle Hồ and Farmers).

The Cinema Department organized the film screening to celebrate the anniversaries of the August Revolution (August 19, 1945) and National Day (September 2).

The event is being jointly held by the Việt Nam Documentary and Scientific Film Studio; the National Cinema Center; Ruby Media Company; departments of culture, sports and tourism; and cinema centers nationwide.
