“Chiec xe tho Dien Bien” tells the journey of a boy with a bicycle, now displayed at the Dien Bien Phu Victory Museum. Taken on a tour of the old battlefield by the vehicle once used to carry supplies, the boy witnesses the entirety of the Dien Bien Phu campaign with remarkable feats accomplished by Vietnamese people back then. The film is now getting the finishing touches and will be premiered right on the occasion of the anniversary.

According to the screenwriter, the film crew aims to provide children with an insight into the anti-French resistance period to nurture and enhance their patriotism and national pride.

On March 13, 1954, the Vietnamese revolutionary army launched the first attack against the French colonialists’ heavily fortified base of Dien Bien Phu, starting a 56-day historic campaign whose victory on May 7 directly led to the signing of the Geneva Accords on ending the war and restoring peace in Indochina.
