Private Project

Ngoại (Grandmother)

A Vietnamese grandma tells her granddaughter about her childhood with a chicken figurine. Despite the hazardous and tough living conditions created by Vietnam's war, grandmother still recalled fond memories of her youth through the hen’s bond with its chicks. Using the chicken as a symbol of ancestors’ footprints, grandmother hopes to inspire her granddaughter and future generations to cherish life and leave their own mark during trying times of Covid-19.
