The film ‘Vietnamese ceramists from tradition to globalization’ is directed by Bernard Ganne and Paul Penard and sponsored by the French National Centre for Scientific Research, Research Institute on Contemporary Southeast Asian Studies (CNRS), and Region of Rhone-Alpes.
For centuries Bat Trang village nearHanoi has specialized in ceramic production. In the last decade, though, the village has had to completely change its manufacturing process.
The movie shows the production process of traditional hand-crafted products to modern factories and the impact on the industry after Vietnam joined the World Trade Organization.
After the free screening at 28 Thai Van Lung Street, there will be a discussion with director Ganne who is also a research manager at CNRS.
