Timken Lecture Hall, SF Campus


Moderated by Viet Le

Trinh T. Minh-ha

Internationally acclaimed filmmaker, feminist and postcolonial theorist, Trinh Minh-ha challenges the ethical bounds of ethnography, documentary and the gendered, raced politics of representation. Her recent work Forgetting Vietnam (2015) intertwines reflections on re-memory, gender and nationhood, water, warfare, landscape and labor. The film is framed by the 40th anniversary of the end of the American War and the current endless war against terrorism. This special screening is part of the “Love in the Time of War” exhibition at SF Camerawork, curated by VCS faculty member Việt Lê.
