About this submission

To: you, to night is an experimental documentary a personal letter/postcard written by a Vietnamese immigrant. Situate in the Vancouver landscape and amidst dissonances of language and translation, the film reflects upon personal dislocation in relation to immigration, intergenerational trauma, gentrification, and colonialism. Made in response to and dedicated to 39 Vietnamese immigrants who passed away in a container on their way coming into England in November 2019, the film is a self-reflexive act of resistance, a quiet morn for the perpetuating dreams of generations of Vietnamese immigrants who lived and left their lives in between the mist of nights.
