I have a lot of time for Charles who in turn has shown a lot of time for me and for so many people in the film industry who would’ve taken g...

With or without Me

user
Director: Swann DUBUS / TRAN Phuong Thao.
Thi and Chung live in the gorgeous, rice-terraced mountains of Vietnam’s far northwest. Like many young men in this region on the main heroin route from Laos to China, they’re addicts, and they have HIV. Thi wants to kick his habit. Chung just wants to die. “With or Without Me ” is an intimate, tragicomic portrayal of two guys strung out at the edge of the map in a Communist country struggling with drug use, and of the wives, family, doctors and friends trying to pull them back from the brink.

Durban Fest: From Nigeria to Iran

Durban, 26 July: Day 2 The miserable weather is busy getting the better of me as I spent most of the day in bed. As I am in Durban for the film festival at great expense, I dragged myself out of bed for the night's delights. I planned to see Dog Sweat at 22:00, but decided to rather skip that. The two films that were shown tonight are both in competition and both are good - one is exceptional, in fact. It's good to see young African directors at the festival and Andrew Dosunmu...

I try to include the big festival winners - and they are all in Durban. I left the schedule 80% percent comp...
