Trinh T. Minh-ha, feminist, post-colonial theorist, critic, and acclaimed filmmaker will show her new Digital Video, The Fourth Dimension (86:40 mins., 2001) and lead discussion. Her newest work is an exploration of time through rituals of new technology and of daily life and art in Japanese culture (via "loci" such as festival, religious rites and theatrical performance) which recognizes that "in the end" "what is sensually brought on screen" is not "Japan, but the expansive reality of Japan as image and as time-light." This work follows such iconoclastic films as A Tale of Love (1995) , Surname Viet Given Name Nam (1989) , and Reassemblage (1982) and such publications as Woman, Native, Other. Writing Postcoloniality and Feminism (Indiana U. Press1989), When the Moon Waxes Red. Representation, Gender & Cultural Politics (Routledge, 1991).

Trinh T. Minh-ha is Professor of Women's Studies, Film Studies, and Rhetoric at UC Berkeley.
