Bringing change into focus

admin Interviews

Fairfield’s Maria Tran is bringing the Vietnamese community of Cabramatta into focus and shining a light in taboo issues.

The creative mind behind the short film Change of Our Lives, Maria fussed together everything lovable about Vietnamese soap operas with an important message.

As part of a partnership between the Cancer Council NSW and Information & Cultural Exchange (ICE) Maria was asked to make film that dealt with the prominence of Hepatitis B in the Vietnamese community.

For Maria, who is Vietnamese herself, the issue was once close to home and set her on a path of taking the best of Asian television and melding it with the important message.

The result of Maria’s hard work is Change of Our Lives that will be showing at Hoyts in Wetherill Park in June.
