Short film in the making. Coming out this August.
A young city girl visits her aunt in Tien Giang. During her extended stay, she is gradually introduced to pig farming, experiences a direct connection to animals and meat, and comes to embrace the hot stretched-out rhythm of countryside life where people still maintain some old ways of living. Through the girl’s developing relationship with her aunt and the neighborhood we learn about the perception and concerns of a typical farming household in the Mekong.
