More about the Event:

Former CNN Producer (Parts Unknown, Larry King Live) and first time filmmaker Hieu Gray debuts her short documentary 'Quan 13' in a premiere screening at Nguoi Viet in Little Saigon.

Quan 13 tells the stories of the Vietnamese community of Paris' 13th arrondissment. Following the fall of Vietnam in 1975, there has been a mass migration of Vietnamese to the 13th arrondissment due to its affordability and proximity to other Asian immigrants.

Hieu tells the history of this Vietnamese diaspora experience through the lens of food while on her own journey of self-discovery as both a refugee and foodie filmmaker.

"Quan 13" has never before been screened and this will be Hieu Gray's debut screening as director and filmmaker in partnership with the Asian American Journalists Association and Nguoi Viet and thanks to the support of the Little Tokyo Service Center Small Business Assistance Program.

Catering provided through the generous sponsorship of Vuvacious Catering.

All attendees are invited for the chance to win a prize in our raffle!

Space is limited! Please RSVP in advance to guarantee your seat and your plate!

See you there!
