Screening: Reassemblage, Trinh T. Minh-ha, 1982. As part of Online Film Programme: Speaking/Thinking Nearby

This programme presents a selection of films that echo some of the discussions negotiated by Trinh T. Minh-ha in her filmic works as well as in her writings, ranging from the ethics of representation in ethnographic film, to aspects of migration, debates on global socio-political developments, and different layers of feminist discourse.  

Co-curated by Assistant Professors, Dr Marc Glöde (Germany/Singapore), NTU ADM, and Dr Ella Raidel (Austria/Singapore), NTU ADM and WKWSCI.

With her remarkable and widely discussed first film Reassemblage, Trinh T. Minh-ha brings the conventions of the documentary to our attention and asks how films in the field of documentary and ethnographic tradition have consecutively established a power to manipulate the way in which we perceive different cultures. By gathering filmic means and techniques that reject the traditional narrative forms, Trinh constantly alerts us to our own process of perception, furthermore reminding us that watching a movie is not a passive, but an active process.

*Advisory: PG13. This film contains some nudity.
