PRIMARY INFORMATION

Trinh T. Minh-ha: The Twofold Commitment


Trinh T. Minh-ha: The Twofold Commitment

An inventive reimagining in book form of the revered filmmaker and theoristís cinematic meditation on Vietnamís origins

At once an artist's book and an interview collection by Vietnamese filmmaker, writer and feminist and postcolonial theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha (born 1952), The Twofold Commitment centers on Trinhís 2015 feature film Forgetting Vietnam, which takes up one of the myths surrounding the creation of Vietnam: a fight between two dragons whose intertwined bodies fell into the South China Sea and formed Vietnamís curving, S-shaped coastline. Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the end of the war, the film draws inspiration from ancient legend to stage an ongoing contemporary conversation between land and water, creating a third space, another way, for historical and cultural re-memory.
This book features the filmís lyrical, essayistic script, along with rhythmically distributed movie stills. Expanding on this central focus is a series of conversations between the filmmaker and critics and film and sound studies scholars dating from 2016 to 2022, amplified by an index identifying key concepts and ideas in the artistís work.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Art In America

Tausif Noor

At their best, Minh-haís films evocatively destabilize the need for stakig out a single perspective without eradicating any one personality or mode of political and social commentary.

Brooklyn Rail

Re'al Christian

The book succeeds in pointing to other entryways and areas of research that have gone untapped in this artistís genre-bending practice.
