“…[an] experimental epic that digs into our excess-obsessed American culture.” — Dan Mecca, The Film Stage

"Let Them Have Their Way" follows the lives of three couples in their search for connection, meaning and happiness in the modern world.

Uniquely combining a surreal narrative with hundreds of clips of found footage, the film takes viewers on a journey through the sights and sounds of consumerism, advertising, and self-help culture. The result is a highly innovative remix film blending fiction and documentary while pushing the limits of Fair Use as rarely seen before. Written and directed by Dien Vo. (112 min.)

Watch faculty member Dien Vo and Ryan Monolopolus in a Red Carpet Interview at the Buffalo International Film Festival 2015 (BIFF).

… weirdly fascinating… variously resembles Koyaanisqatsi and Mon Oncle d’Amerique with some input from Charlie Kaufman… unlike anything else I’ve ever seen.” — M. Faust, The Public
