Mixing personal interviews with startling historical and present-day footage, ENFORCING THE SILENCE, Tony Nguyen’s film about Vietnamese community in US. explores silence and loss in the tragic story of Lam Duong , a young community worker who may have been murdered for expressing his political beliefs. Between 1982 and 1990, five more Vietnamese Americans – four of them journalists – were violently killed, many believe for political reasons. Thirty years later, new filmmaker Tony Nguyen unlocks the mystery of Lam Duong’s life and death, and uncovers truths that Vietnamese Americans have never publicly explored.
