“What About China?”, 2022 (US/CN)

Trinh Minh-ha returns to material shot in rural China in the early 1990s in an essayistic reflection on the rich and complex history of the country – and of the mediums of film, text and voice.

Since the 1980s, film artist and theorist Trinh Minh-ha has made one of the most advanced attempts in film history to give the fundamental conditions of the medium a (self-)critical form.
