|Kites Flying High|
This is a story about a young creative folklorist whose desire is to perpetuate handmade kite art in this tough digital time. It’s about preserving traditional craft which is going downhill but the story of the connection between the earth and the sky, the dream and reality, bringing with it the romantic yearnings of people from the ancient imperial city of Vietnam.
Nguyen Dang Hoang, vice president of Hue Kites Club, was rewarded the title “master of folklore” by the Ministry of Culture and Information when less than 20. He is the youngest folklorist in the kite scene in Vietnam. Loving flying kites since he was a pastor, he has given up many jobs to engage his life with kite wings.
