In 1974, legendary Vietnamese actress Kieu Chinh found herself on a farm in Canada cleaning up after chicken.

She had narrowly escaped the fall of Saigon and a jail sentence in Singapore but Kieu was determined to get back to doing what she loved... making movies.

How would she do it?

Well, it involved Hollywood stars Burt Reynolds, William Holden and Tippi Hedren!

Kieu tells Anoushka Mutanda-Dougherty of her cinematic survival.
