Audience Reviews

“WOW! Be prepared to be inspired, educated, and entertained all at the same time! This documentary goes beyond the ‘typical,’ and shares how the Vietnamese culture has risen above and beyond the war, to where the possibilities of the future is happening now.”

“Vietnam: Fast Forward is an inspiring look into the entrepreneurial spirit of the Vietnamese people. As the child of a Vietnam vet, I was also heartened to see a country that appears to have healed to a great degree from years of devastatingly destructive conflict.”

“I love learning about other cultures and places in the world. I’ve never had a good laugh and felt so good about watching a documentary so much as this one. Definitely check it out. I never knew how beautiful and interesting Vietnam was. Will visit here one day.”
