The northern province of Phú Thọ will launch a short film in Vietnamese and English to introduce and popularise the Hùng King’s Temple and traditional Vietnamese religion.

The 10-minute film entitled Đền Hùng - Linh Thiêng Nguồn Cội (Hùng King’s Temple - The Sacred Homeland) was made by Phú Thọ Province, the Hùng Temple Relic Site and Petro Việt Nam Gas Corporation.

Traditional Vietnamese religious beliefs and practices are introduced in the film, giving viewers a chance to learn more about the glorious history of the nation.

The film will air on Voice of Việt Nam Television, People Television and Việt Nam Multimedia Corporation Television in the coming Lunar New Year. It will show the custom of worshipping Hùng Kings on the occasion of the Ancestral Anniversary and Hùng Kings Festival, falling on the 10th day of the third lunar month.

Legends say Lạc Long Quân (Dragon King) and his wife Âu Cơ (Phoenix Queen) gave birth to one hundred men. Fifty sons went with their mother to live in the mountain and the father took the other sons out to sea. The eldest son followed the mother to settle at Phong Châu in today’s Phú Thọ Province and founded the country known as Văn Lang.

Văn Lang was the first nation of Vietnamese people. The Hùng Kings’ dynasty lasted 18 generations.

The custom of worshipping the Hùng Kings developed from the 12th century, being officially honoured during the reign of King Lê Thánh Tông in 1470. Since then, celebrations of the founders of the Vietnamese nation were maintained throughout the community. The practice was recognised as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2012.

Will (Billy Crudup), his estranged son, attempts to mend their relationship as Bloom relates tall tales of his eventful life as a young adult (portrayed by Ewan McGregor in the flashback scenes).

Big Fish was shot on location in Alabama in a series of fairy tale vignettes evoking the tone of a Southern Gothic fantasy. The film received several significant award nominations, including four Golden Globe Award nominations, seven BAFTA nominations, and an Oscar and a Grammy Award nomination for music by Danny Elfman.

The movie will be presented in original English languages with Vietnamese subtitles

The Hồ Chí Minh Trail has been listed among 11 typical national heritage sites, according to a recent announcement from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

In Việt Nam, the site is known as the Trường Sơn Trail, which illustrates the military trail running across the Trường Sơn Mountain Range. The trail runs through the provinces of Quảng Bình, Quảng Trị, Thừa Thiên-Huế, Quảng Nam, Kon Tum and Bình Phước.

The central region has another four heritage recognised in the ministry’s decision. They are the Champa Nhạn Tower in Phú Yên, the Lê Hoàn temple of worship in Thanh Hóa, Buôn Ma Thuột’s purnishing house in Đắk Lắk, and Marble Mountain in Đà Nẵng.

The remaining sites included in the list of 11 are those located in the northern delta. They are the Thái Lạc Pagoda in Hưng Yên, Thổ Tang Temple in Vĩnh Phúc, and Na Hang-Lâm Bình nature reserve in Tuyên Quang.

The capital city of Hà Nội has three. They are Tường Phiêu Temple in Phúc Thọ District, So Temple in Quốc Oai District, and Đống Đa Mound in Đống Đa District.

The recognition is part of the ministry’s attempt to highlight the cultural and historical values of buildings and landscapes. According to the ministry, the recognition is also meaningful for the protection of the country’s ancient legacy.

The ministry regulates responsibility of local authorities where the heritage item is based in protecting the buildings and landscapes.

Striker Anh Đức scored the crucial goal in the final of the AFF Suzuki Cup against Malaysia in December and is known as one of the wealthiest footballers in Việt Nam thanks to his business ventures.

Đức started his business with a sporting equipment store about seven years ago and then invested in sports shoes and clothing production, before creating his own brand, Anh Duc Sport (AD Sport). He has expanded his business into hotels, real estate and agricultural produce, with pepper the main product.

Anh Duc sport has stores across Việt Nam, with total monthly revenue of more than VNĐ1 billion (US$43,000).

“Being a professional footballer who has the opportunity to use professional and high quality sport items helps me to understand the products better as well as know the demand of the buyers so that I can work out strategy for our production and distribution of sport items. Big brands like Nike and Adidas are quite familiar to me so I know which type is suitable for Vietnamese people,” shared Đức.

When asked about time allocation given he is busy with training, Đức said: “My way is simple, after training, I return to the company, check the operation of my business with my staff. If I play a game, my staff will keep me posted through email, Zalo or other online platforms or call me.”

Miss Sport Quỳnh, founder and CEO of LaVita, a bakery company, said: “In life and business, there will be ups and downs sometimes you might feel depressed and want to give up but I think the most important thing is the way you maintain your aspiration.”

“I think one of the must-have traits of a businessperson is the ability to solve the problems by themself,” she added.

Quỳnh said she travelled, read and learned from others and herself to overcome the challenges faced during the first difficult days of her business. Now, LaVita distributes cakes to six supermakrkets and more than 10 hotels in HCM City, and made revenue of VNĐ3.5 billion ($150,000) in 2016.

“One of the things I learn by myself that I find the most interesting is online marketing. It’s like a fish learning to climb a tree. It’s desperate and hopeless sometimes but I think that one of the secrets to success is patience,” she added.
