Hanoi will appear, through two way views – from outside or inside, with special love and experiences, in the discussion between Jean Noel Poirier and Nguyen Huu Bao in “Hanoia cultural space” under the theme “Hanoi – my love”. The two guests and the audience will share interesting and strange things about our dear and familiar Hanoi.

Jean Noel Poirier had more than 10 years living in Vietnam, including one term working as French General Consular in Hochiminh City and one term as French Ambassador in Hanoi. He has deep understanding about Vietnamese cuisine, Vietnamese culture and people. With his special emotions for this country, Jean Noel made a documentary film name “Mon Hanoi” (My Hanoi), telling about the city he has great affection.

Photographer Nguyen Huu Bao is an original Hanoian.  He was born to a patriotic capitalist family known as Tam Ky. The popular Tam Ky cloth shop in 48 Hang Dao was the largest silk trader in French colonial era. For the last 40 years, Nguyen Huu Bao has patiently taken photos of Hanoi, like a visual historian depicting ups and downs of Hanoi with his images. Each street corner, each individual in Nguyen Huu Bao photos carries their emotional stories about Hanoi.Topic: Hanoi – my love
