The art film is a journey into finding the soulfulness of its makers - the Saigon people and the landscape that constantly reinventing itself.
This piece comes straight from the hearts and visions of two Saigonese, Vicki was born here and Robin has been living in Saigon for over 5 years. They experience the ups and downs, the opportunities, and flourishing spirits of this city like no other. To them, Saigon is not like Paris, Tokyo, or Shanghai. The city is always in-the-making, rough, and chaotic, literally in the physical sense. As you take a ride through the city, there are high-rise buildings and independent shops in between marshlands and public constructions. However, the city’s unchanged element is the people in it. Hence, we want to make Saigon Souls a platform to celebrate the local talents, artists, musicians, craft makers, designers, and many more individuals… etc that make the city unique. Without any stylistic set designs, and meticulous art direction, Saigon Souls wants to capture the rawness and unapologetic, relentless spirit that people in Saigon have.
