Trinh T. Minh-ha is a Vietnam-born composer, artist and author of some of the most profound works of essay filmmaking and literary theory of our age. Her most recent film unfolds spatially as a lyrical dialogue between the two elements—land and water—that underlie the formation of the Vietnamese term for ‘country’ (đất nứớc). Moving between footage shot in 1995 and 2012 on different video formats, the film helps us better understand not only the involvement of the USA in Vietnam, past and present, but also the role of memory in cultural and religious dynamics.
