Youth in Motion presented by Vietnamese American Arts and Letters Association

If we dare to dream, we must also brave ourselves for nightmare. Through documentary and narrative filmmaking, 4 filmmakers point the camera at various protagonists, including themselves, in the midst of conjuring such dreams. The films grapple with ideas such as queerness, poverty, beauty, and individuality. Vietnamese American Arts and Letters Association (VAALA) is committed to making film education accessible to young adults in Orange County through the program Youth in Motion. These 4 highlighted films represent 4 iterations of the program as the filmmakers explore various personal and community-related experiences.

VAALA's mission is to connect and enrich communities through Vietnamese art and culture. Stay tuned for the 2021 Viet Film Fest (Oct 15-30), which celebrates Vietnamese stories and voices in cinema. Learn more at

Being the first generation of a Vietnamese refugee family, a Vietnamese American boy named Andrew was expected to carry on the undone dream of his parents after they escaped the Vietnam War. The cultural conflict brings their relationship into an unsettling situation.
