Green Dragon is a 2001 South Korean film directed by Timothy Linh Bui and starring Patrick Swayze, Forest Whitaker, and Duong Don. At the end of the Vietnam War, many Vietnamese refugees came to the United States to begin a new life. Tai Tran (Duong) arrives at the camp with his sister's two children. He is quickly appointed translator between the Vietnamese and those running the camp. As the refugees adjust to their new lives in America, friendships are formed and many regain a sense of normalcy. Minh (Trung Nguyen) befriends Addie (Whitaker), the camp's cook, and the two form a bond that extends beyond racial barriers. Other residents fall in love and remember what their lives were like before the chaos of war. Green Dragon won the Audience Award at the 2001 Austin Film Festival and the Humanitas Prize at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival.
