Grand-ma’s Broken Leg (shorts program)

The young Vietnamese filmmaker Huynh Cong Nho doesn’t need many words for his idiosyncratic portraits. In films such as Grandma’s Broken Leg (2021) and Mother of Earth (2021), he combines radicality with gentle care in a striking interplay of observation and editing. Bold, political and personal. Time and time again, Huynh Cong Nho brings an ode to life and love; the charming portrait Anh (2015) is enriched by the adoration for his favorite film, Fellini’s 8 ½, while Go Astray (2013) follows a chick hopscotching through a farmyard.
