Trinh T. Minh-ha: Surname Viet, Given Name Nam

"In Surname Viet Given Name Nam, for example, [Trinh T. Minh–ha] intentionally leads the viewer to think that the Vietnamese women being interviewed are really the people they portray; then, when it becomes clear that the interviews are re–enactments by immigrant–actors who live in the United States, the viewer is led to consider issues such as plural identity and the fictions inherent in documentary techniques."

(College of Letters and Science, UC Berkeley)
