|DOKBIZIA - CONFERENCES|
Direction: Trinh T. Minh-ha
The everyday can be dangerously creative. It is difficult to show and pin down, because everyday happenings allow no hold and almost no control.
“What is it that makes both talks and silences stained with shame? Sometimes the mind freezes and the heart goes on fasting: name, nation, identity, citizenship disappear. With every step, the world comes to the walker, and all around, on the immense screen of life, every event speaks.” The spirit of everyday walk leads her to a whole tradition of independent walkers in ancient Asia, at the same time as it provides her with a link to struggles around the world, more specifically to the transnational struggles of women in the U.S., Argentina, Mexico, and China.
