Finding Phong back to movies

Finding Phong - Vietnam
  • Country: Vietnam
  • Director: Tran Phuong Thao and Swann Dubus
  • Year: 2015
  • Duration: 92'

Phong grew up the youngest of six children in a small town in the center of Vietnam. From the time he was a young boy, Phong felt like he was a girl in a boy’s body. Not until he moved to Hanoi to attend university at age twenty did Phong discover that he was not the only one in the world with this predicament. His dream to “find himself” by physically changing sex becomes a reality several years later. The movie follows Phong’s struggle during these years, with excerpts from his intimate video journal, along with scenes from his encounters with family, friends, work colleagues and doctors—all of whom must come to terms with one boy’s determination to become a girl.
