Part of And Yet She Moves: Reviewing Feminist Cinema

This rigorous and challenging work on identity, memory, and culture incorporates dance, printed texts, folk poetry, and the words of Vietnamese women, raising questions about the politics of interviewing and of documentary itself. “Keenly intelligent, sensuously multilayered. Emotionally, the film leaves you with the courage and persistent strength of Vietnamese women” (The Nation). 1989, video, 108 minutes.

Introduced by Jigna Desai, Department of Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies, University of Minnesota
