Directed by Le Van Kiet, Furie, starring Van, tells the story of a woman from the Mekong Delta whose daughter has been kidnapped. She embarks on a journey to find her against all odds. With box office intake from Vietnam, the US and Canada worth nearly 8.6 million USD, it smashed Vietnamese box office records to become the local highest-grossing movie of all time in March.

Directed by Vietnamese-American Leon Le, “The Tap Box” highlights the 100-year history and development of cai luong (reformed opera), a traditional theatre genre in the south. It features a group of cai luong artists in Ho Chi Minh City in the 1980s, focusing on the challenges they faced to preserve the art. The film has been honoured with 20 cinema awards at home and abroad.

Apart from her jury-member role, Van will join talk shows with audiences as the producer of both films.
