I love Vietnam. I lived there for almost ten years in the oughts, and the writer in me is still sorting through those experiences. I’m wrestling now with more than 600 manuscript pages of a novel I call “The Hanoian.” I adapted a portion of that novel into a screenplay which I titled, “Vietnam No Problem,” and reached the quarterfinals of the prestigious Academy Nicholl Fellowship competition.
“Vietnam No Problem” is a romantic comedy set in Vietnam and it takes place largely in Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, and Sapa. If you’d like to read the script or are interested in helping me further develop the project, please reach out.
