Spaces - Living is Round
Written and Edited by: TRINH T. Minh-ha
Produced by: Jean-Paul BOURDIER
"A graceful, epic
meditation on people and their living spaces in six countries of West
Africa, this majestic film unfolds poetically around three intricately
intertwined voices that provide different, but interactive interpretations.
A cinematic journeys that provokes critical political questions about
perceiving and representing Third World cultures."
-Susan Ditta, The National Gallery of Canada
"...every moment of unsmoothness presents a gap, almost a
kind of wound, a moment in which the inevitably consistent rhythm of
24-frame-per-second film projection is broken, and consequently, a place
at which the film's style can open itself to an observation of the outer
world... a film that reverberates between its subject matter and its
cinematic form, and that challenges each of us to examine the ways in
which we think about looking at films, and other cultures, and at ourselves."
-Fred Camper, Chicago Reader
