In a near future Vietnam where global warming and rising seawater levels have forced cultivation to be done on floating farms, a strong-willed woman has to make a critical decision about her ex-lover, a suspect of her husband’s murder. Set in the vast and beautiful coastal regions of Southern Vietnam, 2030 is a mixed genre of mystery and romance set in the near future when water levels have risen due to global climate change.
Director: Nghiem-Minh Nguyen-Vo, Vietnam
Nghiem-Minh Nguyen-Vo was born in Vietnam and often frequented his small town’s sole movie theatre as a way to escape the atrocities of the Indochina conflict. Immigrating to France to study aeronautical engineering, he continued to the US where he became a physicist. In 1998, his passion for cinema led him to pursue a programme in screenwriting and directing, and his directorial debut, Buffalo Boy, was Vietnam’s entry to the 2006 Academy Awards.
