"The Local People" Film


After appearing in a number of festivals, here is now the complete film of “The Local People” a touching short film (made in 2016) by Pauline Devesa to which I was blessed to have a supporting role and the opportunity to act in Vietnamese for the first time! This was a beautiful experience as it hit close to home and inspired me to revisit my roots.

In brief, this film is based on a true story about a Vietnamese immigrant woman who fled her country during the war. Trapped in a gentrification battle, she’s then faced with an imminent eviction. 

Congratulations to all the talent, crew & everyone who took part in this film for the Kino Kabaret de Montréal challenge of starting & completing it in only 72 hours!
