MAI KHOI & THE DISSIDENTS (2019) DOC NYC 2019
This is an excellent look at one woman's fight for basic human rights being squashed by the government. We watch as she goes from darling to pain in the side of the Vietnamese to the point where they intentionally leave her off the ballots for the Parliamentary seat she was running for. It is an inspiring story about how one person can make a difference.
Best of all if you don't care for the politics you can see this for the music. While I don't speak Vietnamese, I still enjoyed Khoi's music which fills the film from start to finish.
One of the great unexpected finds at DOC NYC the film is worth seeing.
MAI KHOI & THE DISSIDENTS plays again at DOC NYC tomorrow. For more information and tickets go here.
