“Dap Canh Giua Khong Trung” (Flapping in the Middle of Nowhere), the first feature film produced and directed by Nguyen Hoang Diep, will be screened at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival 2014.

The film will compete in the festival’s Asia Window and Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema (NETPAC). The NETPAC award was instituted in 2007.

Director Diep and supporting actress Pham Tran Thanh Duy will be in Taipei on November 18 for the NETPAC award ceremony.

‘Flapping in the Middle of Nowhere’ tells a story of a young woman desperately trying to find money for an abortion. Eventually, a man offers to help, but she is reluctant to take his money because he is in love with her.

The film won the Venice Film Festival’s Critics’ Week Prize.-VNA
