Show Description

Presented by Houston Maritime Center and Museum

Finding the Virgo with Lauren Vuong showcases the award-winning documentary film “Finding the Virgo” which tells the gripping story of Lauren Vuong, a San Francisco attorney whose childhood escape from Vietnam epitomizes the trials and triumph of the human will.  Vuong’s narrative begins in war-torn Vietnam, where, at just seven years old, she and her family, members of the former merchant class and military ranks, faced the perilous seas to escape communist persecution.  Her journey aboard a small boat during the “Boat People Crisis,” led to a near-death experience at sea, followed by a miraculous rescue that forever shaped her life and values.  Settled in America, Vuong embarks on a decades-long search for the captain and crew of the Virgo, the American-flagged LNG carrier that saved her life, underscoring her gratitude and acknowledging the importance of recognizing the unsung heroes who embody the best of our humanity.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Ms. Vuong.

 VIP seating includes Pre-Show reception with Ms. Vuong and Premium seating
