The 24 year-old actress won a prize for acting from the Vietnam film association and a prize at the recent Asia film festival. She was the star of the movie “Chuyện của Pao” (Pao’s story), which has been shown in over 10 international film festivals including Fukuoka, Pusan, NHK and China Golden in 2006. The movie was one of the top five movies at the World Montreal film festival.

Hai Yen said that it was difficult for Vietnamese movies in general and Chuyện của Pao in particular to win prizes at top international festivals. Films made by other countries are of better quality as a result of capital investment and superior human resources.

Chuyen cua Pao has been shown at ten famous universities in America and will be presented in 12 more this December.

At the moment, Hai Yen and her film team have been preparing for Mùa Hè lạnh lẽo (Cold summer) – to be shot in January 2007.
