The heirs of Vietnam
MARTINIQUE (France) - 2015 - 90 MINUTES
They are part of the first generation of post-war Indochina. They were born in Vietnam or Martinique. They inherited a trauma underlying the colonial and racial issue. They are the wounded by silence, rejection, misunderstanding. Thus Annette and Jean-Claude resume their parents' journey, from Martinique to Vietnam, and go back to the source of a disturbed identity.
