Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is an amazing up and coming city and one of my favorites in Southeast Asia. This film is a culmination of 10,000 RAW images and multiple shoots capturing some of the cities relentless energy and pace of change. Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic.
The soundtrack to the video is the energetic Mondo ’77 by Looper (used with permission). Read an interview with Rob in Word HCMC for some background information on the project.
Official selection at Tiburon International Film Festival 2012, DisOrient Asian American Film Festival of Oregon 2012, Mudfest 2012, and ANIMAYO 2012.
