As anyone that has ever tried to navigate the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam can tell you, the traffic patterns and scooter movements are intimidating and seemingly impermeable for many newcomers. During my last visit to the Vietnamese city, I recall anxiously waiting on street corners for gaps in the neverending barrage of scooters only to be ushered through roundabouts by kind locals. In his film, Traffic in Frenetic HCMC, Vietnam, filmmaker Rob Whitworth accurately depicts this frenzied aspect of the environment while showcasing some of the beautiful landmarks and cityscapes former Saigon has to offer.
