November Update

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES caps off a great October by winning our second award–an AUDIENCE AWARD at the New Orleans Film Festival! Thanks to all of you who came out and supported us at all of our various festivals stops.

November kicks off with Versailles’ most famous resident making big news. Rep. Joseph Cao (R-New Orleans), the first ever Vietnamese American elected to the US Congress who happens to come from Versailles, stirred up quite the controversy by being the only Republican in the House to vote for the Health Care Reform bill. You can find more news items about Rep. Cao by visiting our Facebook page.

We screen next in Austin, Boston (2 screenings), and Philly again:

The holiday season is right around the corner, and the A VILLAGE CALLED VERSAILLES DVD makes a great gift!! Visit our website and purchase a copy today. The proceeds from the sales of DVDs go towards our community engagement campaign and enable us to continue showing the film around the country.

I want to end this update by sharing another great story of Vietnamese Americans making a difference in their community. Siblings Viet & Tram Nguyen, both principals of public elementary schools in Oakland, CA, have worked tirelessly to turn their schools around. Here is the feature story about them on the local ABC affiliate. Check it out.
