Description

Naked Spaces—Living is Round, Trinh T. Minh-ha, 1985 16mm transferred to digital file, colour, sound, 135 min Rating: PG13 (This film contains some nudity)

Six West African countries (Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin and Senegal) stand in the centre of this film. The work explores the life in the rural environments of these countries by taking a closer look at the everyday. With its nonlinear structure, the film steps away from the classical traditions of the documentary/ethnography tradition and offers a sensuous approach. It is a poetic journey to the African continent in which the interaction of the encountered people or the spaces in which they are living becomes relevant.

Trinh T. Minh-ha (Vietnam/United States) is Professor of Rhetoric and of Gender & Women’s Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. Originally trained as a musical composer, she received her two masters and PhD from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. Her numerous books include Lovecidal. Walking with The Disappeared (2016), D-Passage. The Digital Way (2013), Elsewhere, Within Here (2011). Her work has been recipient of many awards, including the Wild Dreamer Lifetime Achievement Award at the Subversive Festival, Zagreb (2014); the Lifetime Achievement Award from Women’s Caucus for Art (2012); and the 2006 Trailblazers Award at the MIPDoc in Cannes.
