In the last 20 years, I have been making documentaries about Vietnamese refugees.  My work won two Emmy awards and some other accolades.  In the process, I collected a trove of stories.  Not all of them would fit in a 56 minutes and 20 seconds video (the time format for PBS 1 hour stand-alone documentaries).  But they deserve to be told. 

Since 2018, I've been developing a platform to feature these stories. It is called VOICES from Oblivion. This project features stories of Vietnamese refugee experience in pre-settlement period which took place in Southeast Asia.  Many of these stories are not shared from older generation to the younger ones due to shame, trauma and stigma.

The goal of this project is to create a digital platform to feature stories that don't often told. Through storytelling and media presentations, we want to engage audience in this forgotten chapter of Vietnamese diaspora experience. 

We are at the beginning stage of this project but got room to grow. Please help us build this important chapter of history for future generations.  Thank you.
