    Women Make Movies at 45: Documentary Is/Not a Name - The Work of Trinh T. Minh-ha: Forgetting Vietnam (Philadelphia premiere)

    International House Philadelphia

    3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104
    • Friday March 17th 2017, 7:00pm to 9:00pm
    dir. Trinh T. Minh-ha, US/S. Korea/Germany, 2015, video, 90 min.

    One of the myths surrounding the creation of Vietnam involves a fight between two dragons whose intertwined bodies fell into the South China Sea and formed Vietnam’s curving S-shaped coastline. Influential feminist theorist and filmmaker Trinh T. Minh-ha’s lyrical film essay commemorating the 40th anniversary of the end of the war draws inspiration from ancient legend and from water as a force evoked in every aspect of Vietnamese culture.

    Preceded by:

    Dir. Trinh T. Minh-ha, US, 1983, 16mm, 38 min.

    Trinh’s classic meditation on the ethics and aesthetics of ethnographic filmmaking. A film that does not attempt to speak about the women in Senegal, just to speak nearby.
