Vietnam’s first hip hop movie, set for a mid-December release, unveiled its first movie teaser. From writer-director Stephane Gauger (LA Film Fest Audience Award winner and Independent Spirit Award nominee for OWL & THE SPARROW), the teaser was put together after only one week of shooting. Currently in production under Chanh Nam Film in Saigon through June, the movie will feature leading performances by Khuong Ngoc and Ha Hien (a member of Hanoi’s Big Toe dance crew). 

Saigon Electric or Saigon Yo is about the rapidly growing hip-hop hype in Vietnam and the young generation’s passions for dancing.

Music will be provided by the independent SoCal-based entertainment group Silly Crew.
