Her most recent film as a director, The General and Mespans 25 years of her relationship with General Giap, the leader of the North Vietnamese Army and adviser to Ho Chi Minh during the Vietnam War.

Alexandra-Silliphant discusses the discrimination she faced as a young Vietnamese refugee in Virginia, and how her friendship with actor and martial arts expert Bruce Lee gave her confidence as a teenager. She also talks about her decades spent filming and interviewing General Giap, which revealed a much more complex and misunderstood person than is widely believed.
