As a Chilean filmmaker indicated, “A country without documentary films is like a family without a photo”, (Guzmán). For that reason, my concern revolves around historical memories through postwar invisible traumas.
I am influenced by the historical volatility in the society of Vietnam and family ephemera including memory from old black and white photographs. My work examines my family history through my own lens as a Vietnamese woman as people disappeared from the photos and I did not know about them or did not have a chance to meet my relatives in real-time.
