Keenly intelligent, sensuously multilayered… Emotionally, Surname Viet Given Name Nam leaves you with an impression of the courage and persistent strength of Vietnamese women, not in terms of propaganda-poster heroics but on the human level.

Surname Viet Given Name Nam Diretto da T. Minh-ha Trinh


Trinh stands as one of the most distinguished conceptual visual makers in the world, and this late eights documentary is a jewel in her canon.

Trinh proposes an alternative to this model of war as cinema and cinema as war. “The problem of translation, after all, is a problem of reading, and of identity.” Intermingling country, family, language, culture, and identity in its title as well as in its form and substance, Surname Viet Given Name Nam suggests that we may have to dismantle all of them before we can begin to put them back together again.
