A film on President Ho Chi Minh is scheduled to be screened in the neighbouring country of Laos in May, according to a decision by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

The film, entitled “Ho Chi Minh, portrait of a man”, will be broadcast on Lao national television. The screening is in celebration of President Ho Chi Minh’s 123rd birthday on May 19.

This is one of the best documentary films on the life and career of Uncle Ho published on the occasion of his 100th birthday in 1990.

The film, co-directed by Bui Dinh Hac and Le Manh Thich, features valuable documentaries that have never been used before on the simple but noble life of President Ho Chi Minh, who was recognised by UNESCO as a hero of national liberation and an outstanding cultural celebrity.-VNA
