New Release!
BRAVE MISS WORLD

In 1998, eighteen-year-old Linor Abargil was stabbed and sexually assaulted while working as a model in Milan. Weeks after this traumatic experience, she was crowned Israel's first Miss World. Over the course of five years, director Cecilia Peck follows Abargil, on a mission to confront the trauma of her past, visiting rape crisis centers, college campuses, and townships of South Africa to inspire others in their journey of healing. Emmy nominated BRAVE MISS WORLD is a startlingly honest portrayal of how personal tragedy can be transformed into strength in the fight against sexual violence.

New Release!
FORGETTING VIETNAM
<

FORGETTING VIETNAM is a lyrical film essay commemorating the 40th anniversary of the end of the war and of its survivors. The newest title from influential feminist theorist and filmmaker Trinh T. Minh-ha (SURNAME VIET GIVEN NAME NAM), the film draws inspiration from an ancient myth that Vietnam was created by a fight between two dragons whose interwined bodies fell into the South China Sea and formed the country's curving S-shaped coastline. This legend informs every aspect of Vietnamese culture. In FORGETTING VIETNAM, images of contemporary life unfold as a dialogue between land and water - two spaces that form the term "country," and uses fragments of text that evoke traces of trauma of international proportions. The third space is one of historical and cultural re-memory in which insight from local inhabitants, immigrants, and veterans from an extremely divisive war remember yesterday's stories, and comment on today's events. Learn more or see additional titles from our Asian and Asian American Studies Collection.
