“Power relations lay at the core of normative representations. In the tuning in with the forces of a life event, one can say that form is attained only to address the formless. Reality in its social and historical dimension is not a material for artistic reflection or political commitment; it is what powerfully draws one to cinema and yet cannot be captured without dissolving itself in its fragile essence when one approaches it without subtlety and vulnerability.”


Please join us for a special public screening and lecture by Trinh T. Minh-ha. The event will begin with a public screening of Trinh T. Minh-ha’s film Shoot for the Contents (1991, 101 minutes) from 5 to 6:40 pm, followed by a public lecture at 7 pm.
