"owl and the sparrow" in nyc this friday.

our dear friend stephane gauger's film "owl and the sparrow" is premiering in new york this friday, may 29th. he will be in attendance for q&a's on friday and saturday, at cinema village.

"time out new york" has just given the film a four-star review:

Owl and the Sparrow
Dir. Stephane Gauger. 2007. PG. 97mins. In Vietnamese, with subtitles. Pham Thi Han, Cat Ly, Le The Lu.

Orphaned ten-year-old country girl Thuy (Pham) flees rural Bien Hoa for the streets of Ho Chi Minh City. In another kind of movie, her fate would be a dismal one. But in Vietnam-born, U.S.-raised filmmaker Stephane Gauger’s sweet-natured fairy tale, a lost child can broker redemptive romance between two lonely adults: a heartbroken zookeeper (Le), recently jilted by his fiancée, and a stewardess (Cat) who’s mired in a dead-end relationship. Sentimental without being cloying, the film is a charmer, just like the gravely wide-eyed Pham. (Opens Fri; Cinema Village.)—Maitland McDonagh

just heard word that the new york vietnamese meetup group will be attending the 9:20pm friday showing.

see you all friday !
