Reel Asian & Inside Out Co-Present:
An over-the-top extravaganza, Madame X is a candy-coloured, camp-filled tale of a pre-op transsexual superhero who fights intolerance, all the while looking fierce and fabulous.
In a remote part of southern China, a mysterious Westerner appears on a riverbank, completely naked and disoriented. Taken to the local police station, he refuses to speak, or is incapable of speech. At the local hospital, the foreigner befriends a handsome nursing assistant and together they unlock feelings in each other and unfold memories of a traumatic secret in this dramatic thriller.
Ho Chi Minh City is where dreams can come true if the city doesn’t eat you up first. In the opening scenes of Ngoc Dang Vu’s feature debut, nave newcomer Khoi is trying to find his way around when he meets Dong, a sexy charmer who offers Khoi a place to stay. Who would say no? Dong, though, turns out to be a total player and then some. Khoi eventually finds himself in a relationship with a soulful hustler, Lam, who seems to have given up on shaping his own destiny.
