There, he completed his Graduate Diploma and finally his Masters in Documentary. During his time at VCA, Anhvu was able to make several short documentaries: Sway, The Marshall Cooking Show, and The Betel Tree. These three films all deal with questions surrounding identity and the search for one’s place in greater society. The subject of identity is a very relevant one for Anhvu. Growing up in Australia in the 1980’s, there were few public figures and role models to whom Vietnamese Australians could relate. His documentaries were made as part of his own quest for identity. Blush of Fruit, Anhvu’s debut feature, was influenced by Jakeb’s father’s discovery in his early fifties that he was adopted. Conceived in 2005 and completed in 2012. Blush of Fruit premiered at IDFA, won the Adelaide Film Festival’s inaugural Documentary Award, and also won AIDC’s DocWeek Documentary Award.

Since 1999 Kjær has directed a number of primetime nationwide documentaries, with huge audience success and following debates in a wide range of public media - e.g. "For Børnenes Skyld" (For the Sake of the Children) - (40 min). The footage for "For Børnenes Skyld" laid the foundation for "Mercy Mery", which Kjær has continued to develop and research, with an international feature documentary film in mind. Parallel to this, Kjær has worked on the TV series "Felt Hospitalet" (The Field Hospital) - (6x25 min, 2010), about the Camp Bastion field hospital in Afghanistan. The intention of this series was to give a more nuanced insight into the realities experienced in a complex, global conflict. It is a unique platform for examining the consequences of war for all parts, as both ISAF soldiers, the Taleban and civilians are unwillingly forced to occupy the same area. The series was aired primetime on TV2 Denmark, and followed up on other TV2 platforms, such as TV2 News, Good Evening Denmark, and Good Morning Denmark (TV2).
