A love letter to the mosaic of queer lives in Saigon, a city that is as liberating as it is oppressive.
Streaming Dec 8–14
In the Vietnamese metropolis of Saigon, family culture carries on as it has for centuries, even when blood ties are severed. MÁ SÀI GÒN (MOTHER SAIGON) intimately explores the timeless human yearning for love, acceptance, connection, and a sense of belonging, all seen through the prism of LGBTQ+ experiences.
Directed by the talented Khoa Lê, this stunning documentary serves as a love letter and heartfelt tribute, a bittersweet ode to a comforting yet disturbing mother and to a city as liberating as it is oppressive.
