FINDING PHONG (TÌM PHONG)

Directors Trần Phương Thảo and Swann Dubus create an intimate portrait of Phong, a charismatic young Vietnamese trans woman from a small town now living and studying in Hanoi, as she begins her transition and seeks to reconcile with her family. Combining video diary footage shot by Phong with a frank portrayal of gender identity and family dynamics by the directors, the documentary is an honest and emotional look into the year-long journey of Phong coming out of her shell and finding herself.
