PIFF 38: NUOC 2030

Nuoc-2030 - 2

Nuoc 2030 is set in a near-futuristic Vietnam, where a beautiful coastal region has been flooded as a result of global warming and multinational corporations compete to build floating vegetable farms. Forced by the rising waters to live their own tenuous floating existence, Sao and her husband Thi survive in the primal tradition of fishing in the now the over-harvested waters and collecting rainwater to drink. But tragedy strikes, leaving Sao alone to solve the mystery of Thi’s unfortunate and suspicious demise. This poetic film is at once a dystopian sci-fi fable, an eco-thriller, and a love-story, evocatively conveyed through lush and lyrical panoramic visuals and beautiful underwater sequences.

NUOC 2030 screens Monday, February 9 at 6pm at the World Trade Center and Friday, February 13 at 8:45pm at the World Trade Center as part of the 38th Portland International Film Festival.

Tickets are available online or at the door.


The Portland International Film Festival is sponsored by The Oregonian/OREGONLIVE, LAIKA, Regal Entertainment Group, Delta Airlines, Yelp!, Travel Portland, King Estate, Hotel Modera, The Autzen Foundation, The Lamb-Baldwin Foundation, KINK.fm, and many others.
