Painted Nails

Van’s personal story encompasses both the immigrant’s journey and one woman’s rise to activism.

Videos

Van sees her American dream begin to crumble with the discovery that her health problems, which include two heartbreaking miscarriages, are the result of the toxic chemicals in products used in her salon.

Overview

Synopsis

It won’t take long to fall in love with Van Hoang in the documentary Painted Nails. An immigrant who doesn’t speak English, Van seems an unlikely candidate to be an American activist. But through the course of the film, it’s clear she has unintentionally become a contemporary Norma Rae or Erin Brockovich, with an entirely new cause that affects not just factory workers or victims of regional environmental contamination, but nearly every person in America.
