FYC for the 2022 Golden Globes, Kiu is directed by female director Mai Thu Huyền, who also stars in one of the film’s lead roles.  Kiu held its U.S. premiere as the selected Vietnamese Spotlight film at the 2021 Newport Beach Film Festival, the second only Vietnamese Spotlight film in the festival’s 22-year history. Available now on Amazon Prime, Kiu was also awarded 'The Most Outstanding Film of the Year' at the 'Once Upon Vietnam' Awards, an event sanctioned by the Asian World Film Festival.

 

 

Inspired by the most famous Vietnamese literary classic of all time, The Tale of Kiu by poet Nguyễn Du, this female-driven film is a story of a filial daughter who agrees to wed a stranger to save her falsely imprisoned father and brother. Unbeknownst to her, this marriage is a deceitful façade to force her into sex labor at a brothel where her talent and beauty spawn cruel jealousy, unwanted obsession and lustful admiration. Pushed into an emotionally wicked and twisted journey, she must decide whether to fully accept or defiantly challenge her Fate in life. With lush cinematic work portraying achingly romantic landscapes of Vietnam, Kiều is a profound juxtaposition of the suffocating conditions of women in a feudal regime and the beautiful empowerment of human liberation.

Now available on Amazon Prime Video. US release by 3388 Films www.KieuMovie.com
