RFT Online film screening - Monsoon

Directed by Hong Khaou

Watch anytime till 31 Aug 2021

Reading Film Theatre (RFT) is teaming up with Peccadillo Pictures to bring you the virtual release of Monsoon.

Directed by Hong Khaou (Lilting), MONSOON is a visual and emotional tour de force with a tender performance from Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, The Gentlemen). The film is a rich and poignant exploration of the struggle for identity in a place where the past weighs heavily on the present. Kit returns to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time since he was six years old when his family fled the country in the aftermath of the Vietnam-American war. Struggling to make sense of himself in a city he’s no longer familiar with, he embarks on a personal journey across the country that opens up the possibility for friendship, love and happiness.

‘An elegant study of cultural alienation and displacement’
