Director Biography - Lý Minh Bá

Ly Minh Ba is a young filmmaker born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam. Currently, Ba is studying Film - Hoa Sen University (2021 - Present) and Film Directing - Ho Chi Minh City University of Theater and Cinema (2019 - 2022).

In the summer of 17 years old, Ba made a short film for the first time in high school. After the movie screening in class, Ba returned home with a very special feeling and knew that cinema would be the path that I pursued.

Since then, Ba started practising making various short films with my friends. Gradually, Ba felt more confident in myself when I finished making two short films "Humming Wood" (2022) and "Glorious Nightfall" (2023, top 5 CJ short film projects 2023).

At the same time, Ba's next short film project "Doping" was selected in the top 10 best projects in the SaiGon Stories program. The film is expected to be shot in 2024 and released on international sVOD platforms.

Director Statement

On the journey to assert their position, the characters in "Glorious Nightfall" seem to fall into the unfinished state of youth. The Son character always wanders with his passions and then loses his own family. The Ethnic Girl character is immersed in the illusion of a bustling city but always has to cling to the highland town. The two of them, have two different identities, all struggling to find the meaning of life in a dark dream. And when the funeral music plays at the end of the film, it's not about despair, but about hope.
