A conversation with acclaimed Vietnamese-American poet Ocean Vuong, who was raised in the United States by his illiterate, immigrant mother. It was by discovering poetry in high school that he found a way to express his experiences of growing up at the bottom of society. His strong, painful poems go straight to the heart. The conversation is led by the festival's former artistic adviser and one of Ocean's translators into Norwegian, Mathias Samuelsen.
