HOW TO FIGHT IN SIX INCH HEELS – CLOSING NIGHT PRESENTATION
Âm Mưu Giày Gót Nhọn
Directed by Ham Tran
Anne is a flourishing New York-based fashion designer with a seemingly perfect love life. But she suspects that her fiancé Kiet, relocated to Vietnam for business, has a supermodel mistress. Now Anne has made her cunning plan to infiltrate the Vietnamese fashion industry, and battle for the truth. The uproariously comedic HOW TO FIGHT IN SIX INCH HEELS not only satiates the haute couture appetites, but is also spiced up with hearty moments of love and friendship. Vietnamese American director Ham Tran and writer/producer/star Kathy Uyen team up to create this vibrant box-office hit that demonstrates the best of Vietnam’s film industry today.
The screening will be preceded by the AAIFF’14 Awards Ceremony.
After the screening, we will hold a Q & A with producer Timothy Linh Bui and director Ham Tran (via Skype).
