Cannes Award-Winner Dang Di Phan is heralded as one of Asia’s most promising new filmmakers.
Winner of SACD Best Screenplay Award at Cannes International Critic’s Week, Bi, Don’t Be Afraid! is seen through the eyes of a precocious six-year-old boy, Bi, who lives with his parents, his aunt and his grandfather, who, after a long absence, has suddenly returned home with a grave illness. Director Phan contrasts the gradual deterioration in the adults’ lives with the youthful innocence of a perceptive little boy in a remarkably assured directorial debut that heralds the emergence of one of Asia’s most promising new filmmakers.
