Saigon Eclipse takes place in present day Ho Chi Minh City. It is inspired by the characters and themes of Nguyen Du's 19th century masterpiece The Story of Kieu, a work considered to be the most important epic poem written in Vietnamese. This ancient story relates the destiny of a young, beautiful and talented Vietnamese woman who sacrifices herself for her family. This epic poem chronicles the fate of Kieu, a beautiful young girl, who soon after her secret engagement, returns home to find her father is about to be imprisoned on trumped up charges. Kieu offers herself in payment for her fathers debt without fully understanding the ramifications of the decision. A stunning and tragic story of loyalty and the perils of beauty, it was written as an allegory for Nguyen Du's beautiful country Vietnam, which has often been possessed and abused by others. Directed by Othello Khanh(France). Starring Dustin Nguyen(USA), Truong Ngoc Anh(Vietnam), Marjolaine Bui(France), Johnny Nguyen(USA), Nhu Quyen(Vietnam), Daniel You(France), Edmund Chen(Singapore), Joseph Chen Tseng(Hong Kong)
