Children of the Mist

Những đứa trẻ trong sương

Greek Premiere
In the misty mountains of North Vietnam, a Hmong girl walks the thin line between childhood and becoming an adult. Over a period of three years, girls in her minority are forced to lose their innocence, discover the traps of seduction, and fight for their independence. ​​For her debut feature, a young Vietnamese filmmaker spent three years in the community, documenting with a sensitive approach the controversial tradition of “bride-kidnapping” through the eyes of a teenager that finds herself torn between her desire for education and a life outside the village and the pressures of cultural values that view young women as commodities to be sold for high dowries. A compelling and eye-opening drama.
