Nguyen Duy Anh (vudieunongsay) is a filmmaker living in Hanoi, Vietnam. In 2019, he graduated with a major in film directing from a 4-year exchange program between Hanoi Academy of Theater and Cinema and INSAS, Belgium. As a director, screenwriter, producer, editor and organizer, Duy Anh has released various works, including fictional short films and documentaries, installation videos, music videos, and more. These works have had the opportunity to be screened and exhibited at various venues and film festivals such as Singapore International Film Festival, Bali International Short Film Festival, Kunsthalle TRAFO, etc. Duy Anh’s work often explores and questions the dominance of larger systems over individual’s freedom of expression in contemporary social contexts. Besides, Duy Anh is also a member of Babau.Air, a collective of curators, producers and artists in Hanoi. With Cao Viet Nga, Duy Anh co-founded Hoa Quỳnh Cinema – an intimate project that organizes film screening and other film-related activities.
Hoa Quỳnh (Night Cactus) – a flower that blooms only at night, quietly, discreetly, but strangely beautiful. Hoa Quỳnh Cinema is named after this flower, which also operates from late night until dawn in a small, clean and cool attic on the edge of Hanoi’s old quarter. At night, Hoa Quynh Cinema will randomly select three films regardless of genre, subject or format, be it art-house movies, Hollywood movies or old TV episodes, be it music videos, promotional clips, comedy skits, video art or any other animation that catches our eyes. On long, bored nights, when the trees are silent, when you can’t fall sleep, think of us. In the corner of the garden, there are night cactus flowers blooming.
