​​​Bio nach Ninh Binh
(directed by Sabine Zimmer)

The film tells the story of a German lawyer from Nürnberg, who has decided to leave for Vietnam. Together with her Vietnamese partner she wants to open a crematorium with German environmental technology. An 'organic' crematorium, so to speak, and they also want to establish a vocational school in their new 'home'. 'Organic according to Ninh Binh' will be a film trip to Vietnam, which will bring us an exciting and largely unknown land closer.
