The Friends of Vietnam Heritage’s Book Club will host its monthly event with a review and discussion on the novel Catfish & Mandala by Andrew X Pham on October 4.

The author, who was born in HCM City but spent most of his childhood in the US, penned the book after a two-wheeled voyage through Việt Nam. The book won the 1999 Kiriyama Pacific Rim Book Prize.

The New York Times called the book “Remarkable… A trip so necessary and so noble that it makes others seem like mere jaunts or stunts.”

The event will take place from 7pm until 8.30pm at Maison de Tet Decor, Villa 156 Từ Hoa Street, Tay Ho District.

During ‘Black-and-White Movie Month’, the Centre for Assistance and Development of Movie Talents (TPD) will present a screening of the Oscar-winning movie The Artist tomorrow.

Premiered in 2011, The Artist is made in the style of a black-and-white silent film.

Written, directed, and co-edited by Michel Hazanavicius, the movie takes place in Hollywood between 1927 and 1932, when silent cinema fell out of fashion. The movie focuses on the relationship between an older silent film star and a rising young actress.

The Artist has received critical acclaim and won many accolades. It was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won five, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor – the first ever given to a French actor (Jean Dujardin). It was also the first French-produced film to win Best Picture.

The screening will be at 7.30pm. TPD is at 51 Trần Hưng Đạo Street (4th floor), Telephone (024) 3936 6559 for reservations, a donation at the door of VNĐ20,000/person is recommended.

Hong Kong newspaper South China Morning Post has listed the underground guerrilla warfare tunnels in HCM City’s suburban district of Củ Chi among the top seven tunnel tours in the world.

Located some 70km north-west of HCM City, the Củ Chi Tunnels are an enduring symbol of the Việt Nam War. The 250-kilometre-long complex was built in the late 1940s and underwent intense bombardment by the Americans in the 1960s.

Today the tunnels are preserved as a war memorial and attract millions of visitors every year.

Last year the Củ Chi Tunnels were eighth out of the top 25 Asian landmarks voted for by TripAdvisor travellers.

American news site CNN has listed it as one of the world’s top underground tourist attractions.
