NDO/VNA—Vi (“Taste”), a film by Vietnamese director Le Bao, won the “Most Promising Project” award at the Singapore International Film Festival, which took place from November 23 to December 4.

The film is about a Nigerian football player named Bassley, who goes through many jobs in Ho Chi Minh City to earn a living in the hope of reuniting with his wife and children soon.

The short film is only an idea for a long movie, but it was made carefully by Le Bao and producer Dong Phuong Thao who spent much time persuading foreign actors to participate in the film.

Before being sent to the Singapore International Film Festival, the film was screened at the Thailand Film Festival in August.
