Dong Loc Crossroad is a poignant, poetic, and heartbreaking true-life story of eleven members of an all-female unit of north Vietnamese volunteers charged with the hazardous task of detonating unexploded ordnance at a key crossroad during the Viet Nam War. The beautiful and haunting soundtrack features rare royal court songs interspersed with patriotic songs of the era. Dong Loc Crossroad won the Gold Lotus Prize for Best Film at the 12th Vietnamese Film Festival in 1999. It is being screened here for the first time with English subtitles produced by the Center for Southeast Asian Studies.
