3 years after our PBS premiere, A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES returns to TV this Sunday 8/25 on World Channel, followed by an online screening on Monday 8/26 at 8pm (live chat with Mimi Nguyen and me, hosted by CAAM). With parts of the U.S. hard hit by natural disasters this past year, this poignant story of a community overcoming challenges through faith and resiliency is more relevant than ever.
This occasion is a milestone for us the filmmaking team. For the past 3 years, we have been thrilled by the positive responses and humbled by the accolades we have received. Above all, we feel incredibly privileged to be trusted by the New Orleans Vietnamese American community with their story. Big shout outs to OneVietnam and Boat People SOS for sponsoring Monday’s online screening, and our immeasurable gratitude to the funders, supporters (especially VAYLA-NO & MQVN-CDC), and many collaborators.
