FOG OVER THE SUMMIT… STORM OVER THE LAND


Director: Siu Pham
Running time: 40′00″
Category: Documentary
Country: Viet Nam

Synopsis:
On the mountain, an amusement park rules over a secluded corner in Asia, amidst the fog and the fascinating violence of the playful western world. At the foot of the mountain, a peasant works his field. In the middle of the field, a white painter uses an abandoned house as a studio. Peasant and artist are bonded by tenderness and mutual respect. And yet they do not understand each other. The peasant cannot speak English and the white man cannot speak Vietnamese. Nevertheless, using gestures, the peasant manages to tell the artist his father is dead. And the white man, who will not attend his traditional funeral, makes a painting as a tribute to the peasant’s late father. On the mountain, the amusement park in the fog continues to attract the crowd.
