Japanese TV highlights Vietnam’s ancient Oc Eo culture

Japanese TV highlights Vietnam’s ancient Oc Eo culture The Japanese TV channel BS, is filming a documentary on the ancient Oc Eo culture in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang to highlight its unique cultural characteristics.

As part of the project, from September 19-29, the film group will shoot scenes in Ho Chi Minh City, Quang Nam and An Giang provinces where the Oc Eo culture is found. The Japanese funded film will be approved by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism before it is shown in Japan.

Discovered by a French scholar Louis Malleret and made public in 1944, the Oc Eo culture grew and developed in the southern delta, largely in An Giang, from the first to the sixth century AD.

In addition to An Giang, the scientists have discovered over 100 sites belonging to Oc Eo culture across the Mekong Delta provinces and parts of the south-eastern region with more than 50,000 artefacts made from various materials such as terra-cotta, stone, agate and metal.

The most common is ceramics, reflecting the cultural identity and origin of the culture.

Vietnam is currently proposing UNESCO recognise the ancient Oc Eo culture as a cultural heritage. (Source: VNA)
