My animation for “The Sympathizer” and “The Committed” by Viet Thanh Nguyen published in Italy by Neri Pozza.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction,”The Sympathizer” is the story of a man of two minds, someone whose political beliefs clash with his individual loyalties. In dialogue with but diametrically opposed to the narratives of the Vietnam War that have preceded it, this novel offers an important and unfamiliar new perspective on the war: that of a conflicted communist sympathize”.
“The Committed” is the sequel.
