Synopsis

Flagged is a short documentary illustrating the social fragmentation of Vancouver’s Vietnamese community, especially the younger generation. Interviewees offer their perspective on the controversial "freedom and heritage" flag (the flag of South Vietnam) that has been used to represent Vietnamese diasporic groups — confronting an unspoken political tension that could divide generations if the issue remains unaddressed.

Mimi Nguyen

Director's Biography

As a second-generation Vietnamese-Canadian, Mimi is aware of the diasporic anxiety of losing one’s "culture." She has created video projects focusing on the lived experiences of people in the Vietnamese communities in Vancouver. Mimi believes that keeping their stories alive is the best thing we can do to honor their sacrifices.
