Selbe: One Among Many + Reassemblage

"I do not intend to speak about. Just speak nearby", Trinh T. Minh-ha says at the beginning of the 16mm film Reassemblagein her commentary. Filming in Senegal, the director distills sounds and images from the everyday life of villagers and resists the ethnological need to explain the "other" by resorting to explicit attributions. The film is a critique of the ethnological viewpoint and documentary authority. Trinh also questions her position as a filmmaker as well as pointing out the impossibility of finding a neutral and objective narrative voice.
