We Dance At Home (Chúng Tôi Nhẩy Đầm ở Nhà)

In Chúng Tôi Nhẩy Đầm ở Nhà (We Dance At Home), Huynh revisits her family’s personal home video collections to explore her parents’ unique Vietnamese diasporic experiences of living in Peterborough, Ontario, for over 35 years. Through interviews and juxtaposing archival footage with present day documentation, together, we explore the following: How are their ideas of "home" changing? What role did the "home" play in building a community and a sense of belonging?
