The 11th European−Vietnamese Documentary Film Festival 2020 will present documentary films from Vietnam and ten European countries including The Secret World of LEGO®, directed by UK filmmaker Christian Trumble.

In The Secret World of LEGO®, we follow Justin, a young design student, as he travels to LEGO® headquarters in Denmark in pursuit of one of the most hotly contested jobs in the world − a LEGO® set designer.

We meet Matthew, who undertook the same process and has now risen to become a Vice President of Design. In this special, we discover what makes LEGO® tick, meet some of its key people, and reveal more about the company DNA than ever before.

The Secret World of Lego is Channel 4's highest-rated documentary of 2015 with a consolidated audience of over 3 million viewers and a 13.5 per cent share and nominated for Best Entertaining Documentary at The Grierson Awards 2016.

Each night between the 1 to the 10 October in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, audiences will have the opportunity to enjoy one Vietnamese documentary film followed by one European film. On 6 October, The Secret World of LEGO® will proudly follow the Vietnamese documentary Doctor Hoang Thuy Nguyen, a Vietnamese expert in bacteriology and vaccinology.
