Manzi Art Space will kick-start a new series of experimental movie and video art screenings entitled Chieu Bong (Vietnamese for cinema) with the screening on January 12 of The Sound We See: A Hanoi City Symphony – a cinematic exploration of the dynamic urban environment of Vietnam's capital.

For a month, 18 local filmmakers worked together to document the rhythm and movement of the daily life in Hanoi from their unique perspectives.

 Dividing the day into 24 hours, participants shot locations they felt best represented the city at each particular time with each hour becoming one minute in the final film.

The result is a spectacular 24-minute journey through the city as it has never before been experienced, shot on black and white Super 8 motion picture film and hand-processed by the filmmakers.

A series of experimental short films by Hanoi Doclab's filmmakers entitled Four Windows will also be introduced.-VNA
