We're very happy to share that our Vietnamese title directed by Ash Mayfair just got another recognition: THE THIRD WIFE received a Special Mention at the Milano FF 2018. "For the grace and delicacy with which she managed to talk to us about Freedom, despite having chosen to tell us about the tragic destiny of child brides in the rural society of Vietnam during the nineteenth century, educated to please and procreate in a condition of muffled, unshakable slavery, the jury gives a special mention to The Third Wife by Ash Mayfair."
