Combining archive film, newly shot footage and contemporary music, Dust & Metal brings unfamiliar stories of Vietnam’s past and present to the screen for the first time. Stepping away from Hollywood’s portrayals of the American/Vietnam War, this documentary offers an unorthodox perspective of Vietnam told through the lens of the country’s ubiquitous mode of transport – the motorbike.

This film is in Vietnamese with English subtitles. Please note the advertised time is the start time for the film.

This screening is accompanied by a live score performance by Xo Xinh, and a Q&A with director Esther Johnson after the film.
