The award-winning movie Cha Cong Con (Father and Son), directed and scripted by Vietnamese Luong Dinh Dung, will compete at the 21st Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival scheduled to take place from November 17 to December 3 in Estonian capital Tallinn.

Earlier, the paternal-themed movie won Best Foreign Feature and Special July awards for outstanding cinematography at the Arizona International Film Festival 2017 from April 19 to 30.

In addition, Father and Son received the Indie Spirit Best Story Line Award at the April 13-17 15th Boston International Film Festival 2017 which attracted 3,281 entries from around the world. It won Best Cinematography at the 17th Milano International Film Festival in Italy.

Father and Son is adapted from a novel of the same name written in 1995 by Luong Dinh Dung. The movie is a touching story about the life of a boy named Ca (fish) and his poor father who earns a living by catching fish in a river.

The kid always dreams of touching the clouds in the sky in the stories told by a blind man near his home. However, the boy suffers from an incurable disease and finds that he has no time to wait for magic things to happen to him. But the father fulfills his son’s dream by carrying him on the shoulders to go and see everything the kid wants to see before his death.

Held for the first time in 1997, Black Nights has become one of 15 leading film festivals in the world. The event lures more than 1,000 international filmmakers and 80,000 spectators a year.
