Tony NguyenThe Vietnam war officially ended in 1975. But here in the United States, where there was a significant Vietnamese refugee immigrant population, the war continued for a few more years. It’s first known casualty was 27 year old Lam Duong, the founder of the first Vietnamese youth center in the U.S. Because he was seen as a communist sympathizer, he earned the ire of segments of the Vietnamese population in San Francisco, where he lived.

Now, a new documentary, exploring this struggle within the Vietnamese immigrant community, will screen at this year’s Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. The film is called Enforcing the Silence.

Uprising host Sonali Kolhatkar spoke with Tony Nguyen, Director of Enforcing the Silence on April 29, 2011.

Watch the interview here:

The World Premiere of Enforcing the Silence is this Saturday April 30th at 5 pm at the Laemmle Sunset, part of the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. The film’s website is www.enforcingthesilence.com.

Martina Steiner recorded this interview.
