Reassemblage: From the Firelight to the Screen

Reassemblage (1982)

by Trinh T. Minh-ha 

 Produced by Jean-Paul Bourdier

Reassemblage is Trinh T. Minh-ha’s first film. It was filmed in Senegal and released in 1982. This film was part of a three year work on ethnographic field research in West Africa through the Research Expedition Program of the University of California, Berkeley. In Reassemblage Trinh explains that she intends “not to speak about/Just speak near by,” unlike more conventional ethnographic documentary film. The film is a montage of fleeting images from Senegal and includes no narration, although there are occasional statements by Trinh T. Minh-ha. None of the statements given by her assign meaning to the scenes. There is music, silence, sometimes Trinh views a movie, refusing to make the film “about” a “culture”.  It points to the viewers expectation and the need for the assignment of meaning. The audience is left with a sense of disorientation.

An ethnographic study; by Vietnamese Feminist Filmmaker. Filmmaker Trihn Minh-ha’s experimental documentary “Reassemblage” is for all intents and purposes a film about the people of Senegal. But Trinh has a higher purpose in mind. The film if self-reflexive in that as it is as much about documentaries themselves as it is about the people of Senegal. Trinh calls into question the conventions of the documentary and how such films have the power to manipulate the way in which the audience sees. She constantly reminds her audience that they are watching a movie through many filmic techniques. For example, at times she cuts sound completely to emphasize the fact that she has the ability to manipulate what we are feeling. By taking away the music (African drumming in this case), a tool filmmakers often rely on to tell us how we SHOULD be feeling, we are left to our own devices and must figure out on our own what we are seeing, what it means to us, and why. At times this makes viewing her film fairly difficult, but ultimately it’s a rather interesting and thought-provoking experience.

Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow

55928a43b376fb6bf4c6c509b5bfb9fb

Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow, a newish film directed by Sophie Fiennes, lets you sit back and watch the German artist Anselm Kiefer at work, creating his large-scale “world of ruination.” The film has no narration, only some musical accompaniment. And, more than anything, it gives you a direct, unembellished view of Kiefer’s “alchemical creative process” that regularly takes over his studio in southern France. Above, Kiefer puts the finishing touches on, then raises, one of his elaborate creations. The clip, along with others, appears in a larger, more compelling format on the film’s official web site
