Cinematographer, producer: Bao Nguyen
Cast: Quynh Hoa, Quy Binh, Thach Kim Long, Hoang Tran, Minh Duc
Part dystopian sci-fi, part mystery and part romance, this dreamlike second feature from Minh Nguyen-Vo (Buffalo Boy) is set in a not-too-distant future Vietnam where climate change has resulted in the submersion of over half the country’s farmland, leaving a population reliant on fishing from houseboats and floating farms owned by competing multinationals.
The plot centres on a young woman’s quest to discover the murderer of her husband, a self-sufficient farmer whose corpse is discovered floating in the water. The immediate suspect is an environmental scientist with whom she embarked on a passionate romance ten years before. Her journey towards the truth uncovers hints of a corporate cover-up involving potentially lethal genetically-modified food.
Boasting stunning underwater sequences, Nuoc 2030 is a beautifully shot and strikingly original voyage across erased landscapes, where memories from the past come bubbling to the surface.
