Vietnamese-language film Three Seasons at Butler's Maridon Museum, October 5.

As part of its Vietnamese Film Series, Butler's Maridon Museum (map) will show the 1999 Vietnamese-language film Three Seasons on Friday, October 5th, at 6:30 pm. Wikipedia says Three Seasons
is an American Vietnamese language film filmed in Vietnam about the past, present, and future of Ho Chi Minh City in the early days of Doi Moi. It is a poetic film that tries to paint a picture of the urban culture undergoing westernization. The movie takes place in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly Saigon. As the characters try to come to terms with the invasion of capitalism, neon signs, grand 5-star hotels, and Coca-Cola signs, their paths begin to merge.
It looks like the most intesting of the three Maridon is showing this fall.
