When Nguyen Thi Kieu Oanh rode her motorbike 110 km from Hanoi to the small village she featured in her film What I Love Most, she said it was “like finding paradise.” In her lyrical portrait of a place, which won a Green IS Environmental Film Award, 11-year-old Sung Thi Lan shares her love of her village, with its clear stream and rich upland fields.
