Vietnamese Fishermen

Trace the path of Vietnamese fishermen from Indonesia to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and Louisiana. Watch and listen as they persevere as Saigon falls, Katrina hits, and the BP oil spill spreads. The film was made in recognition of 2010 Ruth Fertel Keeper of the Flame Award Winner Peter Nguyen. He accepted the award on behalf of the Vietnamese fishing communities of the Gulf Coast.
