About the Project

In the documentary "612," ordinary individuals serve as catalysts for change, highlighting the transformative power of collective spirit. This rallying cry for unity asserts that resilience, diversity, and community strength can reshape a nation and the world. With a compelling narrative transcending borders, "612" instills renewed hope and issues a call to action for a brighter, more unified future. The film follows the journey of Diem Van Groth, a biracial man with a dual heritage, navigating the complexities of identity in Minneapolis against the backdrop of George Floyd's tragic murder. Skillfully intertwining Diem's evolution with the struggles of interracial children in post-war Vietnam, "612" explores the intricate intersection of personal growth and societal change in a world undergoing profound social transformation, delving into the evolving landscapes of race, heritage, history, politics, and place.
